Health Ministry Suspends Forensic Analysts For Flouting Procedures

The Health Ministry has placed one its forensic analysts on precautionary suspension.

The analyst, who is based at the Pretoria forensic laboratory services, was suspended after he failed to follow proper procedures when analyzing blood samples during a routine quality inspection.

The department has handed the matter over to the Hawks for further investigation, saying that it believes that the allegations against the official are criminal.

The department’s Joe Maila: “One of our forensic analysts was put suspension after the senior management did quality checks and they found that procedures and protocols – which are very strict – were not followed.”
