KUWAIT CITY, May 15: The Egyptian consulate in Kuwait explained that news item published about the imprisonment of three Egyptian doctors for causing the death of a sick woman by mistake is inaccurate and contradicts the truth, reports Al-Rai daily.
In a statement, the consulate said the First Instance Court issued its ruling on Case No. 172045950 and acquitted the two Egyptian doctors of all charges attributed to them, and suspended the six months imprisonment sentence against an Arab doctor after signing a pledge and settling 500 bail. The consulate said the court on April 23 sentenced a doctor in absentia to one year in prison for the same lawsuit.
