On the occasion of the attack of Al-Salmaniya Hospital on 16 March 2011
Youssef Rabih: the persistence of the security authorities to target the consultant doctors is not devoid of sectarian revenge
The president of the Bahrain Forum of Human Rights Youssef Rabih said that the persistence of the security forces to target the consultant doctors on the third occasion of the attack of Al-Salmaniya medical hospital on 16 March 2011 is not devoid of sectarian revenge to revile their medical accomplishment and deprive them of their certificate, Rabie added that the exposure was systematic represented by the arrest of the consultant doctors like Dr. Ali Al-Akry (a consultant of children bone surgery), Dr. Taha Al-Dirazy (a consultant of brain and nerve surgery), Dr. Ghassan Deyf (a consultant of face, jawbones and teeth surgery), Dr. Bassam Deyf (a bone consultant and surgeon in Al-Salmaniya medical compound in Bahrain), Dr. Zahra Al-Sammak (a consultant of anesthetesia and intensive care), Dr. Nader Diwany (a consultant of children and premature infants), Dr. Sadek Al-Akry (a consultant of plastic surgery), Dr. Ahmed Al-Amran (a consultant of family medication).
The accusations charged against those consultants such as stealing blood bags, medications and hospital equipment and wrong operations in addition to fabricating arms possession all revealed a sectarian mentality which was behind this action that harms the security of the homeland and the citizens safety.
Rabih affirmed that the level of medical services after the arrest, torture or separate these competencies of doctors has declined significantly, especially in Al-Salmaniya medical hospital which is considered one of the largest medical compounds in Bahrain.
Rabih wondered about the beneficiary of dragging the consultants of rare specialties of medical work through the military courts and the absence of some imprisoned and separating others.
Rabih called for a real accountability for those involved in this serious offence which violates the provisions of the constitution, the humanity and universal laws.
