Court jails 3 doctors over death of raped woman

5th April 2023

A court in Guinea has found three doctors guilty in connection with the death of a young woman who was raped in hospital.

The government said in 2021 that M’Mah Sylla, had died in Tunisia where she had been evacuated for treatment after being raped.

The case caused a great deal of outrage in Guinea.

A court in the capital Conakry has now sentenced Daniel and Patrice Lamah to 15 years in prison and a third doctor, Celestin Millimouna – who is on the run – was given a 20-year sentence.

They were all found guilty of assault and battery as well as carrying out an abortion.

Patrice Lamah and Millimouna were also found guilty of rape.
