The representative of an economic agent from the capital was briefly detained by the NAC and anticorruption prosecutors in the context of the Public Health Center case. He is suspected of bribing PHC officials to obtain over one hundred medical certificates regarding the passing of hygiene training courses by the company employees.
He was placed in the NAC isolator for 72 hours and is investigated for passive corruption. According to the criminal investigation materials, the suspect would have sent money to the PHC representative during December 2018 to obtain medical certificates endorsement without the attending at the training of the company employees.
