Mus'ab Turki Ibrahim Nassar


The study deals with a very important topic, which is “the criminal liability arising from medical reports contrary to reality in Jordanian law (a comparative study).” The importance of this study is followed by the fact that it deals with an important and sensitive topic related to achieving justice. Medical reports contrary to reality have become a phenomenon witnessed by society, and it has become resorted to Some have the right to curse and plot against others, or in order to accuse them of accusing another person, or other improper intentions that these false and counter-factual reports seek to achieve, and despite its importance, it has not received sufficient and thorough study in Jordanian law. The study concluded that the medical report is considered an official document, meaning it enjoys legal protection. Therefore, we find that the Jordanian legislator has colored its legal protection and set a penalty for those who issue a medical report in contradiction or issued by a person not authorized to do so because it limits the parties entitled to issue reports They are the official public authorities, and accordingly, in order for the medical report to be valid, fulfilling the conditions and having legal value, it must be issued by an official authority after examining the case requesting the report. The researcher wishes for the Jordanian legislator to reformulate the texts governing the crime of giving false certificates and forgery in official documents, in order to make the elements of the crime of forgery in medical reports and to give false medical certificates sufficiently clear and specific.

Key words: medical reports, false medical certifications, medical criminal liability.
