S African doctor accused of killing child freed on Dh100,000 bail

The South African doctor convicted of killing three-year-old cancer patient by failing to provide her with a blood transfusion, has been released on bail.

A South African doctor accused of killing a three-year-old cancer patient has been released on bail after paying Dh100,000 and turning in his passport.

Cyril Karabus, a paediatric oncologist, will appear before the Criminal Court again on November 20.

Prosecutors say the doctor failed to provide a blood transfusion to the Yemeni patient and that he later falsified a report to hide his mistake, making it appear as though the transfusion had taken place.
