    He recovered in the evening of Monday the Ethics Committee of the Pancypriot Medical Association to examine the conviction of the 62-year-old doctor to 4 months in prison, for an indecent attack against his patient in Nicosia.

    According to a competent source, the internal procedures of the Association have been activated to examine the case, which is judged to be very serious, since the court finally condemned the doctor, deeming his testimony unreliable and adopting what the woman complained against him. The case was reported to the police by the patient in August 2020 and yesterday the curtain fell on the case.
