Romania: Nine doctors face trial in illegal plastic surgery case

Text size Aa Aa

Nine doctors from a severe burns hospital in Bucharest in Romania are facing trial after being accused of offering cut-price plastic surgery and funding it illegally with public money.

Those arrested include the hospital manager and head of the plastic surgery ward.

Doctors apparently found clients through adverts on the internet and then accepted bribes.

They allegedly admitted patients using fake diagnostic papers and used hospital facilities to carry out the plastic surgery during their work hours.
