Seven doctors to face charges in connection with child's death

Seven doctors are to be arraigned in court in connection with the death of a 26-month old girl at Mater Dei Hospital.

The child died in February two years ago.

The doctors were to have been arraigned this morning, but while six of them turned up in court, the seventh was not present as he is abroad. The court was told that he had not been formally notified.

Magistrate Antonio Micallef Trigona put off the case to next month and warned defence counsel that if the doctor was not present for the next sitting, he would issue an arrest warrant and the doctor would face the consequences.

The parents were also present in court.
