Medical malpractice and crimes

Recently, a number of Indonesian doctors staged a protest against the Supreme Court’s decision to jail three doctors for their role in the death of a pregnant patient in Manado. It appears that the ruling has been interpreted as the criminalization of the medical profession, an issue that has angered many doctors who claim it was a mishandling of a doctor-versus-patient case where doctors’ immunity from legal charges was supposed to be guaranteed in the performance of their profession.
