Professor released from UAE Jail
78-yr-0ld Professor Cyril Karabus has been released from an Abu Dhabi jail on bail following his arrest at Dubai airport whilst in transit on August 18.
Professor Karabus, a pediatric oncologist, faced a manslaughter charge following the death of a 4-yr-old child he had been treating for Leukemia in Abu Dhabi in 2002.
A family member told J-Wire: “He was released on Sunday night to stay at a colleague’s flat. He is free to move around the UAE but cannot leave as his passport has been confiscated.
The court appointed a medical panel to review the patients file and have also agreed to allow the defence to see the file
The next court date is 20 Nov.
It is by no means over yet but this is a welcome relief for now!”
Professor Karabus had been attending his son’s wedding in Canada and had over nighted in Dubai on his way home to South Africa.
