Bulgarian nurses freed

25 July 2007

David Holford reports that a group of Bulgarian nurses who had been sentenced to death in Libya for deliberately infecting children with HIV have been freed and returned to Bulgaria.

That is certainly good news, but one can’t help feeling that there is more to this story than meets the eye.

According to some reports, they had been living under a death sentence for more than three years, and many of the children had been infected before the Bulgarians arrived in Libya, and the infection was due to poor hygiene in the hospitals.

Perhaps this is a story that an investigative journalist could write a book on — following the nurses and the Palestinian doctor and how they came to go to Libya in the first place.
