The General Directorate Combating Organized Crime has stopped a network for issuing fraudulent medical disability certificates in Sofia. Seven people were detained, three of them doctors.

The medics chaired commissions and the other four were mediators. It was the intermediaries who took the people to the doctors to be certified with fake decisions and the bribes started from 500 euros and depended on the social status of the people. According to the Chief Secretary of the Ministry of Interior, Petar Todorov, the cases are many and the state budget has suffered huge losses.

According to the Bulgarian National Radio, the police operation was performed in three medical institutions - one specialized in oncological diseases and two city hospitals. However, the University Specialized Hospital for Active Oncology Therapy denied that there was a police operation there. An investigation has been initiated under the supervision of the Specialized Prosecutor's Office.
