MOH Says it is Appalled at the Assault on Human Dignity

The Ministry of Health has also weighed in on the issue, saying that its Mental Health Unit recognizes one of the victims as a person with a severe mental disorder.  The ministry says it is appalled at the assault on human dignity and is dismayed that these persons felt comfortable enough to record and share the video.  The ministry also calls on human rights actors to denounce the violation of the rights and dignity of mentally disabled persons and to strongly advocate for the most severe punishment to be levied against the violators. The public is also asked not to share the video so as to reverse stigma, discrimination and victimization of vulnerable persons.
