Karabus fights for his passport
Professor Cyril Karabus will go to court to try and get his passport back from UAE authorities.
CAPE TOWN - Cape Town doctor Cyril Karabus will again try on Wednesday to get his passport back from United Arab Emirates (UAE) authorities.
The elderly pediatric oncologist is still stuck in the UAE after two Abu Dhabi courts found him not guilty of manslaughter in connection with the death of a young cancer patient he treated more than a decade ago.
For a second day in a row, Karabus has been unable to get his passport.
His son, Michael Karabus, said it was now a waiting game.
"There's never been any doubt that this will all end, but there's always been a doubt as to when that would be."
Michael said his father remains confident he will be home within the next few days.
Karabus will return to an Abu Dhabi Court on Wednesday to try and get his ticket home.
The professor was arrested in August while in transit in Dubai as he was travelling from Canada to Cape Town.
