IN SHORT

What bribe?

A DOCTOR from the Sociálna Poisťovňa (SP) insurance house has been charged with accepting Sk10,000 ($240) bribe for confirming an applicant's request for a permanent disabled person's pension.

The doctor, Tatiana S., 52, from Martin, may be fired and faces up to five years in jail.

However, the head of the Martin branch of SP, Martin Hettes, has claimed that the doctor did not accept the offered bribe, even though the person who offered the money claimed the doctor had never returned it.

Police investigator Miloš Mikula said the disabled person had offered the bribe for fear that the commission on which Tatiana S. sat would take away his benefit.
