Karabus thanks South Africa
Prof Cyril Karabus
Prof Cyril Karabus thanked South Africa on Friday for its support, and said this had been critical for his release from the United Arab Emirates.
"I really must thank everybody. Your support has just been fantastic," the 78-year-old, who wore a checked shirt and jeans, said at Cape Town International Airport.
Karabus touched down just before noon, looking exhausted, but relieved after his long flight.
The paediatric oncologist had been detained in the UAE since 18 August, after being sentenced in absentia for the death of a Yemeni girl he treated for leukaemia in 2002.
He was acquitted on 21 March, and won the case again on appeal, but his return to South Africa was delayed because he was on the UAE's database as a fugitive from justice.
There were also administrative delays in obtaining his passport from UAE authorities, and problems with his visa.
Karabus said the ordeal had affected him, but not too much.
"I'm a fairly stable, or unfeeling if you like, person, so it probably had more impact on my wife and kids than on me," he said.
"It's been nine months of my life: almost the time for the gestation of a baby," he joked.
He said there had ...

She said: "It's [the burglaries] still hard for me to deal with. I haven't seen the film yet, but I'll see it at the premiere. I'm going to have to close my eyes for fear of seeing what they really did. It still horrifies me."
Hilton was the gang's first target and they made off with millions of dollars of items and treasured possessions.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she said: "They came to my house five times, stole millions of dollars of my things: Birkin bags, family heirlooms, jewellery that was in my family for years, and then they sold it on Venice Beach ...
The Mathematics Teacher/Calculating Souls For Christ--Pastor Enoch Adeboye

Men and women are precious creatures begotten by the almighty. They are both fruit of God’s will and saved by Christ’s sacrifice. They are loved equally and totally by our Lord no matter their sex or gender. And yet, women are subjected to horrors beyond comprehension. They live in lives torn between embracing God-given freedom and the constant threat of rape imposed upon their daily lives by men.
How many women in your life have been the victim of sexual violence? How many women in your life have been made to feel uncomfortable walking home alone or verbally harassed on the street? How often are your eyes exposed to exploitation of women in advertising, violent pornography, or the media? Statistically, wherever you’re living in the world, you know women, or are one, who has been the victim of male domination. As Christians we are uniquely emboldened by our faith to combat and rectify the culture of violence against women. But in order to do so, we must re-envision the way gender is conceived within our faith.
We must first start with the basic fact that sex and gender are distinct entities. Those of the female sex possess female anatomy and male anatomy ...
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. — Psalm 8:3-5
