UAE medical panel issues response in doctor's manslaughter trial

The case of the South African paediatric oncologist accused of the manslaughter of a three-year-old girl in 2002 returns to the Criminal Court today.

ABU DHABI // A medical committee has finally issued a response in the case of a South African doctor accused of the manslaughter of a three-year-old girl more than 10 years ago.

But the Higher Committee for Medical Liability’s letter, for which the Criminal Court has waited months, said it had referred the case to a branch committee to investigate.

Cyril Karabus, 77, is accused of failing to give a blood transfusion to the girl in 2002.

Sheikh Khalifa Medical City has continually failed to provide medical records for the Yemeni girl, which are needed for Dr Karabus’s defence.

The paediatric oncologist, who denies the charge, has been on bail with his passport confiscated since he was arrested at Dubai airport while travelling with his family.

The court this month removed the case from its list and sent it back to prosecutors, who also failed to produce the case file needed for the doctor’s defence.

The case was adjourned until February 27 for the branch committee’s report.

Changing visa rules

For decades the UAE has granted two and three year visas to foreign workers, tied to their current employer. Now that's changing.

Last year, the UAE cabinet also approved providing 10-year visas to foreigners with investments in the UAE of at least Dh10 million, if non-real estate assets account for at least 60 per cent of the total. Investors can bring their spouses and children into the country.

It also approved five-year residency to owners of UAE real estate worth at least 5 million dirhams.

The government also said that leading academics, medical doctors, scientists, engineers and star students would be eligible for similar long-term visas, without the need for financial investments in the country.

The first batch - 20 finalists for the Mohammed bin Rashid Medal for Scientific Distinction.- were awarded in January and more are expected to follow.
