The Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) had found Dr Mohd Azam Rauzan(YB UMNO Penawar Johor) contravening Section 2.1.4 of the council’s code of professional conduct, and had him struck off its register. The doctor is no longer allowed to practise medicine in Malaysia with effect from December 28.

MMC president and Health Ministry director-general Dr Ismail Merican has gone on record by saying that Dr Mohd Azam's offence concerned the supposed delivery of four babies at his clinic, but records in the clinic did not show any such entry.

The official statement from MMC also said that Dr Mohd Azam had admitted to “abusing his professional privilege as a registered practitioner by causing untrue information to be provided to the Registry of Births in reports certified and signed by him.”

QUESTION: Registration of birth comes under the National Registration Department, which comes under the Home Affairs Ministry. Are they, and probably the Police, taking over where MMC has left off?

What is the law's stand on this?
Viva La UMNO....
