..a doctor in jail..

leave a comment »

Calling all doctor and student bloggers and anyone who can help.

The Government has begun to arrest and jail doctors on a technicality – not registering their clinic with the PHFSA.

This act treats doctors like common criminals. These are community doctors who have not committed a serious crime but instead face an incredibly harsh sentence for their technical lapse.

Dr Basmullah Yusof, a family practitioner, is the first victim of this legislation. He was sentenced despite not having legal counsel representing him, despite pleading for leniency (he had wanted to sell the clinic anyway and is in financial trouble) and as he could not pay the hefty RM 120,000 fine, he is now in Kajang prison.
