Under the Medical Act, a medical report made by a registered doctor is considered a valid official document.
The medical report by the Burmese doctor stating that there is no obvious penetration sign should be accepted as a valid document. If that is the case, then the whole sodomy charge is no more valid.
Under such circumstances, if the investigation still carrries on, it would have given a perception that this is persecution of an enemy political foe. The police should ask themselves: If the accused is just an ordinary citizen, with such a medical report, would the authority still proceed with investigating the case??
Furthermore, the doctor is a foreigner, and has no direct interest in the politics of Malaysia. He is also an experienced doctor. Even a competent house officer would have known what is a tear and what is bleeding. So his competency should not be questioned. Anyway, In any rape case, the evidence of the first doctor examining the case is of utmost important; and looking at past examples, most of these doctors who testified in rape cases are not forensic doctors and are medical officers in the A & E Dept.
As such, I would like to ask the authority to drop the case. Let us focus on things that are more important to the rakyat.
P.S. How the report was leaked and how the confidentaility between patient and doctor is breached, by all means investigate… But that is another matter altogether..
