Prosecutors oppose Police-proposed CMU inquiry

Bucharest Police has proposed the opening of an in rem proceeding into the death of a 3-year-old child who died at the Unirea Medical Centre during an anaesthesia for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), which would allow an IT search of the MRI equipment, yet the prosecutors opposed it, which means the equipment will be returned to the clinic without being examined.

Mediafax reported Police sources as saying the room where the MRI equipment is placed will be unsealed, as prosecutors were against the in rem proceeding required for obtaining the IT expert examination of the MRI equipment. Officials with the Technical Office for Medical Devices at the Health Ministry picked up Tuesday at noon the two defibrillators that failed reviving the boy, and the MRI laboratory was closed and sealed by prosecutors in the wake of the incident. According to CMU Communisations Director Alexandru Popescu, the child’s parents had come with their son several times for neurological investigations and checkups at the centre this year.

The CMU official said the 3-year-old boy suffered from a serious neurological condition.
