Why this is important
Professor Karabus, currently 78 years old was arrested when in transit through Dubai for manslaughter. He is a senior paediatric specialist who headed Red Cross Childrens Hospital Oncology unit for many years. Apparantly in 2002 while he was doing a locum in Sheik Kalifa’s medical centre a patient died of leukaemia. Later in his absence he was “tried” and found guilty of manslaughter. He is sentenced to a period in prison without this ever being communicated to him. This is not justice. He was not given an opportunity to defend himself. Medical patients die, particularly when they have serious illnesses such as leukaemia.
