The pro forma complainant in the matter against Dr Wouter Basson has asked the disciplinary committee of the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) to find Basson guilty of unprofessional conduct, saying he acted as a soldier and not as a doctor while he was employed by the South African Defence Force (SADF) as a physician.

“He was employed as a doctor in the South African Defence Force. His duty was to save lives and not to take them,” he said.
