Manama, Nov. 23. (BNA) – The final report issued today by the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI), chaired by the international expert Professor Mahmoud Cherif Bassiouni, uncovered many crimes committed by the medical cadre in the Salmaniya Medical Complex (SMC).
"Some medical staff members politicized SMC," the report said, asserting that protestors and some medics occupied some areas in the hospital.
The report also revealed the heinous crimes committed by medics, including discrimination against foreigners, spreading false information about the events when speaking to media outlets.
It also asserted laid bare the medical staff's violations of medical norms and laws by allowing media outlets to enter the Accident and Emergency Department and the ground floor in SMC, pointing out that news about security officers' mistreatment of patients in the sixth floor when they regained control over SMC in March proved groundless. The report also rejects many claims made by some sides regarding the prevention of ambulances from taking injured protestors.
"Ambulances were not prevented access to demonstrators," it also said.
