A tripartite committee formed by the Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr Hamed Al-Azmi started its work on investigating the death of Essa Al-Bloushi, a student who passed away last Monday. Educational sources said the committee includes representatives from the Ministry of Health, Fatwa and Legislation Department, and Legal Affairs Department in the Ministry of Education.

They noted the committee paid a visit to Amr Bin Al-Aas Primary School in Rawda area as part of the initial investigation process to cross examine the administrative and teaching staff on the incident. The late student’s teacher will be summoned in the coming days for further questioning. She has been suspended from duty following the incident, the source noted.

The same sources said the committee will conclude its task by reviewing and referring its report to Minister Al-Azmi for relevant action to be taken in line with the rule of law.

According to the teacher, medical report confirmed Al-Bloushi had died of natural causes a day after the incident. She stressed that detectives from the Investigation Department interrogated and released her after colleagues and administration of the school testified in her favor.

The housemaid of deceased student’s mother is alleged to have informed the teacher that the boy was inside the bathroom blowing balloons for decoration ahead of the national celebration when he fainted and died.

Medical report indicated the boy exerted strenuous effort, which affected his heart and led to his sudden death.

The boy who was disabled had earlier undergone three heart surgeries and the teacher was not aware of his medical condition, as she was also on leave at that time, undergoing surgery. The teacher stressed she did not sign any undertaking to show she knew about the boy’s condition, and that the student attended two different lessons after her class on that fateful day.

Meanwhile, several parents have called for the installation of surveillance cameras inside classrooms to minimize acts of violence against their wards. Assistant Undersecretary for Educational Buildings and Planning at Ministry of Education Khalid Al- Rashid said the contracts for installing surveillance cameras in schools cover maintenance works, and the contracting company implements maintenance plan that cover all schools.
