Female MoH worker gets jail, fine for taking bribe

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 10: The Court of Cassation, headed by Judge Ahmed Al-Ajeel, recently upheld the decision of a lower court to sentence a female citizen – an employee in the Ministry of Health – to three years and four months in prison and fined her KD 8,000 for soliciting bribe from a patient in order to set a surgery appointment with a visiting doctor.

According to the case file, the accused was caught red handed while receiving bribe amounting to KD4,000 from a patient in return for surgery appointment with a visiting doctor. Lawyer for the plaintiff, Attorney Mona Al-Arbash, said she would resort to the Civil Court to demand that the accused be obliged to pay adequate compensation to her client, noting that treatment is a right guaranteed by the Constitution and does not need any mediation.
