Military Medical Committee announces suspension of treatment of wounded abroad due to delayed budget disbursement (statement)


The Military Medical Commission announced the suspension of the treatment department abroad, due to the intransigence of the Ministry of Finance and the manipulation of the Central Bank in the disbursement of the last batch of the amount approved by the President of the Republic for 2018.

In a statement Thursday, the committee reviewed the challenges it faces, including the suspension of medical interventions on more than 400 wounded national army wounded in Egypt to complete treatment, as well as the failure to approve and disburse the budget required to treat the wounded abroad for the current year 2019.

The Committee noted the accumulation of cases at headquarters travelling abroad for treatment, which put considerable pressure on the Commission and its work.

The committee accused the Ministry of Finance of intransigence, and pointed to the "manipulation of the central bank in the disbursement of the last payment of the amount approved by the President of the Republic for 2018, which amounted to $1.5 million, where the Ministry of Finance calculated the amount at a rate of 380 Yr to the dollar and when the amount was withdrawn from the bank the bank insisted on calculating it At a price of 508 Yr and a sum of 374,000 dollars in exchange, the committee is charged without receiving the amount."

The committee called on the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank to transfer the difference of $374,000 and urgently stop dealing with the wounded as the bank deals with the traders of junks.

The committee called on President Hadi, his deputy Ali Mohsen, Prime Minister Maeen Abdul Malik, the ministers of defense and finance and the governor of the central bank to intervene urgently to approve and disburse the budget for 2019.

The Committee held the concerned parties responsible for the moral and legal responsibility for the medical and psychological damage caused by the delay in disbursement of the amounts of treatment of the wounded and the resulting backlog of cases, the deterioration of the conditions of the wounded and the loss of many of them.
