Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: A com­mit­tee will be es­tab­lished soon to for­mu­late a draft law pro­tect­ing doc­tors and health­care providers’ from phys­i­cal and ver­bal as­saults, Health Min­is­ter Dr Ja­mal Al-Harbi said yes­ter­day. The much needed law will be ready within three months from the start of the com­mis­sion’s work, Harbi said. The min­is­ter called on Kuwait med­i­cal bod­ies to pro­vide their vi­sion for the draft law. Kuwait med­i­cal as­so­ci­a­tion strongly con­demned the re­cent as­sault against an Amiri hos­pi­tal of­fi­cial and called for hold­ing the as­sailant le­gally ac­count­able. — KUNA
