A sentence of 18 months in jail has been issued by a British court to a Saudi doctor who used his phone to capture nude images of his patients. Suheil Ahmad was working at a British Hospital when two different patients made complaints about the alleged acts.
The 28 year old doctor was found guilty for taking pictures of his patients while they waited in the examination room and then downloading them on to his personal computer. Overall, the investigations showed that Ahmad took 110 pictures of various patients, some of which show them undressing.
Even more concerning about this story is that the court found that the doctor was taking the pictures of his patients while they were in a lot of pain rather than treating them for their illnesses. Ahmed confessed to the crimes and also to two sexual harassment charges which involved touching with his hands.
Britain is home to many Arabic medical professionals as well as other regional foreigners. These incidents happened during the spring of 2012. The doctor was discovered when two separate complaints were made to the hospital administration by two separate patients whom he had treated.
