The former Jordanian Minister of Health, Dr. Nathir Obeidat, will testify in the Al-Salt Governmental Hospital case Thursday, before the court.

39 public prosecution witnesses have already testified, while 10 remain. The court is scheduled to hear them in the coming weeks, in addition to the testimony of nine experts in the case. 

March 13, a technical defect in the Al-Hussein New Salt Hospital caused patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) to be cut off from oxygen, which led to the death of seven Jordanians and outrage in the Kingdom.
