Public statement regarding documentary film
Dr. B.R. Shetty and his family did not participate in, and in no way supported, the documentary film about Dr. Shetty and NMC Health that first aired on 12 July, 2020 on Al Jazeera Arabic, and later Al Jazeera English.
Dr. B.R. Shetty's office was contacted numerous times by the producers of the programme and at no time did the office or any member of the family engage with Al Jazeera in writing or by telephone.
If anyone from Al Jazeera states otherwise, this will be considered libellous and the family is ready to take legal action.
The Shetty family rejects any attempt to politicise the investigation and will never collaborate with any party seeking to use this case to advance political agendas.
The family's attention is firmly fixed on clearing Dr. B.R Shetty's name through all available legal avenues in the UAE and overseas and uncovering the elaborate and well-concealed fraud at NMC Health and other related companies perpetrated by a small group of former executives.
