Jordanian hospitals stop treating Libyans
Tripoli, 3 February 2013:
Jordan’s Private Hospitals Association decided today, Sunday, that it will no longer accept Libyan patients if their treatment is being paid for by the US-backed rebel Libyan authorities.
The move follows on-going disputes between Jordan and Libyan rebels over the amount owed to Jordanian hospitals and hotels for the treatment of wounded Libyan counter-revolutionaries and the accommodation of their families.
Offering an interim payment of 5 percent for outstanding hospital bills and 10 percent for hotels while awaiting forensic examination of the invoices, Libya last week paid Jordan $37 million. However, the association claims that it is not enough. It claims that hospitals alone are still owed $204 million.
