KUALA LUMPUR: Pusrawi Hospital’s Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid did not examine Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan for evidence of sodomy, a hospital official said yesterday.
Pusrawi general manager Wan Mahmud Wan Yaakob said this was because Mohd Saiful sought treatment at the hospital for stomach-ache and constipation.
Hospital director Dr Kamaruddin Ahmad, who was also at the press conference yesterday, said Mohd Saiful was first examined by a female doctor before his case was referred to Dr Mohamed Osman.
“Maybe at that time, Saiful told him that he was sodomised and Dr Mohamed Osman advised him to be checked by a specialist,” Dr Kamaruddin said.
Dr Mohamed Osman is a general practitioner at the hospital’s accident and emergency clinic and not a specialist.
The hospital called for the press conference after a medical report on Mohd Saiful was leaked to Internet news sites and blogs.
Wan Mahmud said the hospital was still investigating the authenticity of the medical report which stated that there was no sign of Mohd Saiful having been sodomised, and how it had been leaked to the public.
