Dr Mohamed Osman has been on leave for two weeks and was to start work today at the hospital located at Kuala Lumpur.
Officials at the hospital's emergency unit where Mohamed Osman was attached said the latter was not present and his name was also not on the duty roster. They added that they had no clue when the doctor would report to work.
Hospital Pusrawi and Mohamed Osman, a Burmese national, were thrust into the limelight in the wake of a leaked medical report of Saiful, a 23-year-old ex-aide to PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim.
According to a copy of the two-page medical report, which was leaked to Malaysiakini and a number of websites, the doctor had found no signs of sodomy on Saiful.
However, Hospital Pusrawi authorities later argued that Mohamed Osman's examination was not sodomy-related despite conceding that the leaked report looked "genuine".
Despite the hospital's contention that the medical examination on Saiful was not sodomy-related, medical experts had argued that the report was still relevant to the controversial case.Source : Malaysiakini
