Nunun’s personal physician scrutinized over diagnosis
The Indonesian Physician Association's (IDI) ethical commission is still scrutinizing graft suspect Nunun Nurbaetie’s personal physician, Andreas Harry, for his diagnosis that stated Nunun was a major dementia sufferer, an IDI official has said.
“We are still digging for more information. It is still ongoing,” IDI chief Prijo Sidipratomo said on Tuesday as quoted by tempo.co.
Due to the fact that another team of doctors from the Soekanto Police Hospital had also disclosed different diagnosis to the public, Prijo said that IDI would pay serious attention to that and intended to ask about it later.
Andreas Harry had issued statement months ago stating that Nunun suffered from amnesia, which could lead to Alzheimer's disease. Thus, he didn’t recommend any investigation of his patient at that time as he viewed that she may not have been able to recall the details.
