Declan Butler is urging everyone to get the word out about the Bulgarian and Palestinian medics falsely accused of infecting children with AIDS. I’ve known about this story for a while, and like a lot of tragedies it has bubbled in the background. The reality is that even doing good in a nation like Libya can get you trapped in the capricious net of dictactorial fiat, and how they maybe be facing execution. Get the word out! Not only are six innocent lives hanging in the balance, but what sort of chilling message will this send to professionals out to do some good in the world where they are most needed?
