It has emerged that the detention of Cape Town professor Cyril Karabus has resulted in a fall-out between International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane and her United Arab Emirates counterpart Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

According to reports the retired pediatric oncologist was arrested and sentenced in absentia to a three-and-a-half-year jail term in 2004, on charges related to manslaughter.

But he was only arrested in August 2012, while in transit in Dubai.

It is alleged he failed to give a three-year-old patient who had been suffering from acute myeloid leukaemia a blood transfusion, and falsified medical record to make it appear as if he did while he worked as a locum in the UAE in 2002.
