The Judge of the Specialized Criminal Court (SCC) handed down a sentence of imprisonment to a consultant S.P. from Prešov haematology department, accused of taking bribes. The reason for the incarceration was concern about the continuation of the criminal act, Katarína Kudjáková, the spokesperson for the court stated for the TASR newswire.

The policemen of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) will remove the doctor from his workplace in the Faculty Hospital.
