Suspended from duty. The cardiac surgeon's request for a change of measures is rejected several times
The Special Court has rejected several times the request of the cardiac surgeon Edvin Prifti for the change of the security measure: "Suspension from duty". It is learned that the former head of the cardiac surgery department is under investigation by SPAK amid suspicions that he abused the tenders at the University Hospital Center 'Mother Teresa'.
This investigation may also involve other doctors or other officials involved in criminal activities. The cardiac surgeon has been under investigation for months on charges of corruption and money laundering. He appeared at the prosecution's wiretapping of Kruja Judge Enkeleida Hoxha. From the wiretaps, the secretary of this court talked about her mother's operation, for the cardiac surgeon to introduce her without queuing and in exchange for a lot of money.
The cardiac surgeon was suspended from practicing his profession, but during a search at his home and office, a sum of almost half a million euros was found. The heart surgeon himself said that part of the money belongs to his wife, while another part he received from international awards. The Prosecution has extended for 6 months the investigation for the cardiac surgeon Edvin Prifti.
