Qusay Al Sharif, the complainant’s lawyer, told Okaz the court had only convicted two – a doctor who was proven not to be in his position at the time of the accident, and an emergency nurse who was proven to have interfered in the case by instructing the child to open a medical file, which is outside his duties.
The defendants were each fined 5,000 riyals in the private right, and 150,000 to be paid jointly by the duo (half the blood money in the private right).
According to the attorney’s opinion, the court dismissed compensation for the child’s psychological damage that he will be suffering for life.
The lawyer said he will appeal against the decision before the Board of Grievances during the legal period.
