DOCTOR FIRED AFTER FIGHTING AGAINST CORRUPTION SUES THE HOSPITAL

Sabina Mammadova, until recently a doctor at the Research Institute for Lung Diseases in Baku, has filed a lawsuit seeking reinstatement to her job. The suit was filed at the Nizami district court, Mammadova told Meydan TV.

According to Mammadova, on 13 January she was unjustly dismissed from her job after she had an argument with Hagigat Gadirova, the director of the institute. “I spoke out against her at a meeting she held,” Mammadova told Meydan TV. “A video of the meeting was shared on social media. Afterwards, I was unjustly dismissed from my job.”

In the video, Sabina Mammadova protests against the institute director Hagigat Gadirova: “You sit here and plot intrigues against people. I am not going to listen to all this rubbish.” Mammadova then appears to leave the meeting.

The doctor stands accused by the institute of failing to diagnose the cause of a patient’s worsening condition and prescribing ineffective treatment, which failed to take into account the patient’s diagnosis of tuberculosis.

Mammadova told Meydan TV that the patient in question was a child who was admitted to the hospital in October 2017. The child was assigned to Dr. Aygun Hajialiyeva, who worked at the hospital unofficially, without any directive from the Ministry of Health. In December, Dr. Hajialiyeva was reassigned to another department, at the same time that the child’s condition was worsening. Left without a physician, the patient’s mother, Khumara Yusifova, asked Mammadova, who had worked at the institute since 1998, to treat her child. Mammadova determined that the child had been misdiagnosed, and prescribed a different treatment.

“I took care of the patient for a week, healed them and sent the child back home,” Mammadova told Meydan TV. “No action is being taken against the physicians who made the patient’s condition worse, concealed test results, established an incorrect diagnosis and came up with justifications for it, but I have been dismissed even though I healed the patient.”

The physician’s account is confirmed by a written explanation provided by the patient’s mother.

When contacted byMeydan TV, the Research Institute for Lung Diseases declined to comment. Director Hagigat Gadirova was not available.

The Ministry of Health’s press service denied Sabina Mammadova’s statements: “They are entirely lies and libel. The ministry will release an official statement about the incident in the next few days.”

On 25 September, a resident of Gazakh in northwestern Azerbaijan, 37-year-old Elmir Mirza oghlu Akhundov, died at a local police station. According to his sister, Ulviyya Akhundova, he was beaten to death. Akhundova posted a series of photos showing her brother’s badly bruised body on Facebook.

The Azerbaijani Committee Against Torture told Open.az that, on the evening prior to his death, Akhundov had been in a fight with a member of a volunteer civilian law enforcement group called Public Police Support (Polisə İctimai Dəstək), in which Akhundov broke two of his opponent’s teeth. According to his sister, on the following day Akhundov was picked up by the police when he went out to buy cigarettes.

“As soon as I heard about it I went to the police department, but they wouldn’t let me in” Akhundova told Meydan TV. “A short time later an ambulance arrived. I asked what happened, but they wouldn’t tell me anything….They said somebody had had a brawl inside the police department and that was why the doctor had arrived. A short time later the hospital called to tell me that my brother had been beaten and killed and to ask me to come and take him away.”

According to Akhundova, her brother’s wrist, arm, hand, and leg were broken, and rocks were embedded in lacerations on his knees. She believes that her brother was beaten to death by the police, an accusation which the Gazakh district police department denies. Nevertheless, the Gazakh district prosecutor’s office has opened a criminal investigation into manslaughter and hooliganism.

According to the information by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, a resident of Ganja, Rahimov Muraz Chapay oglu, was killed during a special police operation. Police received a tip where the criminal was hiding.

According to officials, Rahimov ignored the repeated calls of the police to lay down his arms and surrender. Instead he opened fire on law enforcement officers. Police had to use service weapons, and during the response fire the offender was killed.

Rahimov is the 6th person killed during special police operations. So far 6 killed, 61 arrested and 12 declared wanted. Many criticize Government for using the Ganja events to go after the targeted religious groups. Some even speculate that the bloody protest was staged as a bait by the Government itself to go after the ones who would rise up against the regime.
