A well-known oncologist has been working at the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon for the last two years, breaking a promise he made to his female patients not to resume public medical practice after being investigated for sexual misconduct, the N12 news site reported on Thursday.
After he had moved to China for a few years to work in the oncology field there, his accusers found out lately that he has in fact returned to Israel, serving as a external consult at the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.
After N12 inquired with the hospital regarding the oncologist's status with them, they emphasized that he was only an external consult, and clarified that they will be severing all ties with him.
The investigation took place back in 2015.
It was closed due to lack of evidence, a decision which the accusers considered challenging.
Because of that threat, the oncologist served the prosecution a letter announcing his promise to refrain from working in any public medical system, including public hospitals.
His lawyer contradicted that promise to N12, emphasizing that the oncologist never made any promises to the women.
