An international female doctor was detained for performing illegal abortions at a clinic she oversaw in a renowned private medical building in the heart of Riyadh. The doctor and her female assistant were both taken into custody after a raid that the Ministry of Health (MoH) personnel, in conjunction with the security authorities, carried out.

The abortions were performed in contravention of the Kingdom’s laws, according to the MoH inspection teams. After learning that the doctor was executing abortions without complying with the basic medical and health regulations, ministry representatives investigated the facility.

Following talks with the doctor in private for the performance of an illegal abortion, an official acting as a customer, the Riyadh MoH compliance teams conducted a facility raid. In exchange for payment totaling SR 8000, the doctor consented to perform an abortion. The doctor and her female assistant were taken into custody during a facility raid by the designated MoH teams and security personnel.
