The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health, Lutfi Ammar, held discussions with the Head of the Investigations Bureau of the Office of the Attorney General, Al-Saddiq Al-Sour, on the possibility of releasing certain ministry employees who are pending investigations on corruption and misuse of power charges.

The request regarding the employees takes into consideration the fact that authorities are still investigating their cases; however, it hopes to ensure their gradual return to work at the ministry’s office, according to what was reported by the Ministry’s Media Office.
