During the course of last year, there was a total of 28 acts of aggression against medical staff within the province.

GRA Medical Staff Protest against Attacks JA24Twelve of them occurred in hospitals and 16 in doctors’ surgeries. That’s a whopping 75% up on 2022. But if that were not enough, 2022 was already 100% up on 2021!

Consequently, medical staff demonstrated outside hospitals and medical centres on Tuesday to manifest their rejection of this situation, during which a manifesto was read out, stating that any violence; be it physical or verbal, is an “intolerable social stain, totally unjustifiable from any point of view.”

It should be remembered that any assault on medical staff is equivalent to an assault on an officer of the law or any other public functionary, punishable under the Criminal Law Code.

In fact, even insulting medical staff on Social Media is a punishable offence.
