Police are investigating several cases of forged vaccination certificates. According to reports, a doctor in Larnaca allegedly issued fake vaccination certificates to some of his patients who were not vaccinated.
Police press spokesman, Christos Andreou, stated, “Samples have been taken from 26 patients, which will be sent to the Institute of Genetics and Neurology for analysis. The antibody tests to be performed will be used to determine whether these patients have actually received the coronavirus vaccine. Moreover, the Ministry of Health will provide specific information on these patients who were declared to have been vaccinated by the doctor, but were not.”
"The testimonies will determine the charges against the person involved.”
He added that investigators of the case have "testimonies about the two people - patients of the doctor in question - who died from the coronavirus. Furthermore, the Police will continue to examine the case and take more testimonies specifically from persons who will be expected to testify and those that came into contact with the two patients that died from COVID. The testimonies will determine the charges against the person involved.”
The 53-year-old doctor was arrested on August 6 and, after being remanded in custody twice, he was released pending the conclusion of the investigation. The doctor is being charged with conspiracy to commit a crime, forgery of an official document, circulation of a forged document, registration with false representations, negligent acts that cause bodily harm and for violations of the General Health System.
