KUWAIT CITY, Nov 16: The Criminal Court has deferred the pronouncement of the verdict in the case involving a pharmacist accused of selling medicines worth 600 dinars to a citizen under the false claim that they were a remedy for gangrene, reports Al-Rai daily.

The victim’s condition worsened, ultimately leading to the amputation of his foot. The court is set to deliver the ruling on the 29th of this month.

Investigations revealed that the medications, purportedly for treating gangrene, were actually wound-cleaning agents. The accused visited the victim at home, deceiving him by falsely representing the substances as German treatment.

The accused denied impersonating a treating doctor. He explained that, while at a car wash station, he overheard a young man discussing his brother’s gangrene condition on the phone. Expressing concern, the accused offered to provide the appropriate treatment, convincing the victim’s brother to pay 600 dinars for the medications.

Subsequently, the accused administered the medication over several days, worsening the victim’s condition. The heightened temperature prompted the victim’s transfer to the hospital, where medical staff determined that amputation was necessary.

Upon consulting specialists and presenting the medications used, it became evident that they were merely detergents and sterilizers. A complaint was subsequently filed against the pharmacist.
