- He bought 1,000 to 1,500 Bahraini dinars from patients for a single surgery
- Emergency treatment is free at the Salmania Medical Complex
- A Bahraini criminal court has sentenced a doctor to six months in prison
Bought up to 1500 dinars for a surgery
His method was to transfer patients who came to his clinic at a private hospital to the Salmania Medical Complex for surgeries and charge them for the surgeries performed here for free. He bought 1,000 to 1,500 Bahraini dinars per surgery from patients who did not know that surgery was free at a government hospital. The government-run Salmania Medical Complex provides free emergency treatment to locals and foreigners alike. The doctor, on the other hand, used his acquaintances at Salmania Hospital to make emergency appointments, thereby providing the opportunity to perform surgeries for free.
Fake receipt issued in the name of the hospital
The court’s investigation revealed that the doctor was exploiting patients who did not know about it. The public prosecution also found that he had issued a fake receipt in the name of Salmania Medical Complex for money bought from patients. This was a strategy to instill confidence in patients. The investigation against the doctor was initiated on the instructions of the Financial and Administrative Supervision Office on the basis of a complaint related to this. The court sentenced the doctor to six months’ imprisonment and suspended his sentence on 500 dinars bail until the time of appeal to a higher court.
