Riyadh – An expatriate doctor working in the province of Al-Baha in Saudi Arabia is facing prison over fake documents.
The practitioner, who holds a valid medical degree, submitted a forged certificate of experience in a bid to ensure the renewal of his contract.
The Saudi Commission for Health Specialties examined his application and approved his valid degrees, except the certificate of experience, which proved to be fake.
The Qalwa hospital terminated the contract of the suspected doctor and referred his case to the security authorities.
According to Okaz, the doctor could have renewed his contract, hadn’t he resorted to a fake certificate of experience.
