Danville Doctor Released from Captivity in Zimbabwe

Danville, KY. – A Danville, Kentucky doctor arrested this month in
Zimbabwe on charges of practicing without a
license has been released. Senator Mitch McConnell's
office confirms that Dr. Ed Montgomery and his
wife, Sara Jane, have both had their passports
returned. The two had been relieved of their
passports some two weeks ago, while they were
on a medical mission trip to the African country.

McConnell aide Julie Adams told the Danville
Advocate Messenger that the doctor worked with
the U-S Embassy and officials in Zimbabwe to
obtain a license to practice in that country. That
resulted in the charges being dropped.
