INDIA – Once A ‘Leave India’ Notice Has Been Issued To Foreigners, They Have To Leave The Country: Center

The Center told the Delhi High Court on Monday, May 13, 2019, that the person should leave the country regardless of having a valid visa to stay, once a “leave India” notice had been issued against a foreigner.

DUBAI – Medical Errors: How The UAE Legislation Protects Patients, Physicians

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) is investigating a complaint from a Dubai expatriate whose young wife died at a private hospital in Dubai on May 9 during a hip replacement surgery. Betty Rita Fernandes, 42, had a congenital problem and when she was born, her hip was slightly displaced. The UAE law is unflinching when it comes to fixing liability for medical negligence and malpractice, according to a legal expert. The UAE is therefore continually striving to protect both patients and doctors by revising and amending the existing Medical Liability Law, Federal Law No. 10 of 2008.
