Other five doctors at Burn Clinic arrested in plastic surgery case


Other five doctors at the Burn Clinic were arrested in the plastic surgery case, reports Mediafax. Bucharest Court of Appeal ruled the arrest yesterday, rejecting the appeals made against the same preventive measure made by the director of the health unit and two of his subordinates. The ruling of the Court of Appeal is definitive. Thus, the only doctor to be investigated without being arrested is Ioan Costica Ghita Plujdescu. According to investigators, the doctors in the plastic surgery case asked for bribes between EUR 450 and 3,400 depending on the intervention, as the money was split between the members of the intervention team, and in case their reports were validated, Bucharest Health Insurance House paid almost RON 5,000 per surgical intervention. Twenty-six persons are under investigation in this case for taking or giving bribery, fraud and false. The investigations focus on 16 doctors at the Emergency Clinic Hospital of Plastic, Reparatory Surgery and Burns, a nurse and nine patients, said the Prosecutor’s Office with Bucharest Tribunal.
