Head doctor accused of accepting bribes

A head doctor at a Debrecen-based hospital is suspected of accepting “gratitude money” from patients for preferential treatment, police reported on Wednesday.

The doctor allegedly took the money from four patients between October, 2021 and January, 2022. In one case the doctor’s assistant also received some of the money.

The doctor was questioned on four counts of taking a bribe. The doctor did not make a substantial confession, but the assistant acknowledged committing a crime.

Proceedings were also launched against the patients on suspicion of bribery. (police.hu; nepszava.hu; hvg.hu; 24.hu)
