Bulgaria Seeks UN Agency's Help in Freeing Nurses Sentenced to Death in Libya

October 3, 2005

In a letter, Bulgarian officials have asked the UN's World Health Organization to help secure the release of five nurses from Bulgaria who are awaiting execution in Libya after having been convicted of purposely infecting some 400 children with HIV. The five nurses, along with a Palestinian doctor, were convicted in 2004; all maintain their innocence. Marc Danzon, WHO's regional director for Europe, met with Bulgaria's health minister and pledged his personal assistance in the case, which he called "a humanitarian issue."
