Five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor freed by Libya after more than eight years in prison for allegedly infecting children with HIV waived their right to seek redress from Libya upon their release, the doctor said Wednesday. "Yes, we signed such papers," Dr. Ashraf al-Hazouz told journalists at the European Parliament, where the group attended meetings with the assembly's political groups and president. Al-Hazouz did not elaborate on the nature of the documents. The six were freed in July following intense diplomatic efforts by the European Commission and French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, Cecilia. The European Commission, which was involved in the negotiations to free the medics, said it had no knowledge of any waivers signed by the group.
