Anesthetist faces 40 years in jail for abusing unconscious postpartum mothers
GAZİANTEP – Doğan News AgencyAn anesthetist in Turkey’s southeastern province of Gaziantep faces more than 40 years in jail for delaying the awakening of mothers who had just given birth in order to sexually abuse them.
The anesthetist, identified as S.S., who was working at a private health care clinic in Gaziantep, is facing 40.5 years in prison after an employee at the same clinic filed a complaint about the doctor for sexually harassing young and pretty women after they had given birth by delaying their awakening from narcosis.
The indictment, which was accepted by the 4th Court of Serious Crimes, demanded 40.5 years in jail for S.S., on grounds of “using drugs and stimulants contrary to a license,” and committing “sexual assault.”
The employee who complained about the anesthetist spoke to the court under the condition of anonymity, after which hidden surveillance cameras were put inside the room where people coming out of operations are kept as they wake from the effects of anesthesia.
The camera captured a scene where S.S. drugged a mother just out of labor to keep her unconscious and abused her. The police then detained S.S., who was later arrested.
