If necessary, identifying cause-and-effect relationship between the actions of the doctor and death need to be further examination, said Wednesday the Minister of health of the Russian Federation Veronika Skvortsova, commenting on the case of hematologist Elena Mishurina, who received two years in prison for the death of the patient.

«I don’t know the details of the case about which you ask. But I think it’s a matter of the court, and if necessary, re-examination, to determine if there is indeed a causal relationship between the actions of the doctor and the death of the person», — said Skvortsova told reporters.

The incident that gave rise to the criminal case, occurred in July 2013 in a private clinic on Union street. According to the investigation, conducting the patient trepanobiopsy, Misurina «violated the methods, tactics and techniques of execution» in the procedure, damaging the blood vessels of the patient, who a few days died.

The Prosecutor’s office of South-West of Moscow on Wednesday has asked to cancel a sentence of Misurina because the investigation took place with violations, and the evidence does not allow to make an unambiguous conclusion about her guilt.
