In the town of Meleuz, a criminal investigation into a bribe for assigning disability has been completed, the press service of the Investigative Department of the Republic of Bashkortostan reports. As it was established during the investigation, a local doctor demanded money for assigning a patient of the 3rd group of disability, which she was entitled to. The investigators found that a woman applied to undergo a medical examination in order to establish disability. She provided all the necessary documents for this. The examination was carried out by a 52-year-old doctor.
She understood that according to the results of the examination, the patient was entitled to the 3rd disability group. However, the doctor suggested expediting the implementation of the examination results for a fee. She estimated her “services” at 13 thousand rubles. The patient agreed to the proposal of the doctor and after that she turned to the law enforcement authorities. Following the transfer of the money, the doctor was detained by police officers.
