The crime of Dr. Abbas Khan

George Galloway says Dr. Abbas Khan, who died in a Syrian prison shorty before he was set to be released, was guilty of the crime of “administering medical treatment in a war zone.”

…Galloway, who has spoken to the Syrian authorities and was due to collect Mr Khan on Friday, said: “We know what the crime was: he was captured on the battle field in Aleppo. He had no right to be there.

“He was administering medical treatment in a war zone. This is obviously something that if he was captured he would be held for.”
