Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THl LtTHlRIDCI HERALD Tunday, January M, Groups condemn seizure of medical documents OTTAWA (CP) Civil liber- ties groups in nine provinces is- sued a joint statement Monday condemning the seizure by Ed- monton city police of a doctor's medical records. Dr. David Craig of Edmonton was arrested a week ago and charged with defrauding the Al- beita Health Care Insurance Commission of in April, 1970. He has denied the charge. A statement by the Union of Human Rights and Civil Liber- ties Associations said police seized not only financial records but detailed personal medical histories and health care files from Dr. Craig's office.

In 1970, the utility earned ss or a share includ- ing an extraordinary, non re- curring gain of 14 cents a share on the sale of land. Gross revenue from gas sales was an increase of 10 per cent.

"The confidential medical histo- ries of approximately of Dr. Craig's patients are now in police custody. This action by police is reprehensible." The civil liberties group said the police action would under- mine the relationship between doctor and patient. It violated the Bill of Rights, said the pro- test signed by groups in all provinces except Nova Scotia. A spokesman for the Cana- dian Medical Association said in an interview that the Alberta College of Physicians and Sur- geons is investigating. STATEMENT EXPECTED The medical associaton ex- pected to be able to make a statement later this week. The civil liberties associations called upon the medical associa lion to condemn the police ac- tion and take action to have Dr. Craig's records restored. "The medical associations should adopt policies providing for the legal recognition of the confidential doctor-patient rela- tionship, enforceable in our courts." The law doesn't protect a pa- tient against seizure oi his med- ical records by police, neither does it recognize any confiden- tial relationship between patient and doctor. A doctor who re- fuses to testify about a patient in court may be jailed. DO-IT-YOURSELF Watch for our flier in the mail now!
