He was accused of accepting a bribe.
Aside from him, the police detained two patients, who were charged with bribery. The patients were meanwhile released, the TASR newswire reported.
“NAKA will process the proposal to take the doctor into custody,” said Police Corps Presidium spokesperson Michal Slivka, as quoted by TASR.
If he is found guilty, the doctor could spend from three to eight years in prison. The accused patients are threatened with six months to three years in prison, TASR wrote.
Renáta Kormanová, head of the Skalica hospital, confirmed to TASR that the NAKA detained a senior doctor of the urology ward, but failed to provide more details.
“It is a very unpleasant situation which is not good for our hospital,” Kormanová said, adding she was surprised by the detention as she has not received any report about corruptive behaviour from patients or hospital employees.
She also said that the whole urology ward operates in standard regime.
