A UAE-based psychiatrist has recently been arrested by the authorities for intentionally prescribing controlled medicines and psychotropic drugs to young people.
The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHA) revoked the doctor’s license and has his credentials removed from the medical registry of the country.
He was recently arrested by the Sharjah Police’s Department of Narcotics Control for prescribing such drugs without having any medical conditions related to such types of medicines.
According to Khaleej Times, several young people aged 20 to 30 years were frequently visiting the clinic in Sharjah. A team from MOHAP and Sharjah Police was formed to investigate the incident.
