A woman living in Nyaunglebin village of Moe Nyo township of Bago Region got injuries in a motorcycle accident at about 10am on 12 February and did not receive any medical treatment at Pyay 500-bed General Hospital, which was closed.
Then, she went to Dr Kyaw Thura, who failed to work at General Hospital but worked at a private hospital at 11 am on 13 February. It cost her K1.3 million to cut her right two fingers (ring finger and little finger) off due to the injuries. Then, Dr Kyaw Thura told her to make an operation again. She then transferred to No (6) Military Hospital (100-bed) as she could not afford the costs.
The military medics had to cut off her right middle finger and index finger as she needed emergency operations.
Regarding this case, the woman reported to the Administration Council of Pyay that Dr Kyaw Thura asked her for money, and for joining CDM and illegally inciting others to join CDM and asking for money by breaking Civil Service Personnel Law. Police Captain Kyaw Aye Hlaing of Pyay Township opened the case under Penal Code section 505(a).
The Myanmar Medical Council have also received the complaint about the doctor for his failure to perform his duties.—MNA
