Raid on the practice and apartment of a doctor in Berlin: The investigators suspect that the doctors issued false vaccination certificates for a fee. Connections to organized crime are also checked.
A 77-year-old doctor from Berlin is suspected of having issued false vaccination certificates. According to the police and public prosecutor’s office on Thursday, the doctor from the Wilmersdorf district is said to have entered false vaccination certificates in vaccination cards for a payment of at least 180 euros.
The investigators assume that a “clear three-digit number” of fake vaccination certificates were issued so that customers could obtain digital vaccination certificates from pharmacies. This would have given them access to cultural institutions, restaurants, department stores, shops and other facilities to which the 2G rule applies.
As the investigators further announced, the investigations also extend to a connection between the woman “in the milieu of organized crime”. On Wednesday, emergency services searched the practice and the apartment of the accused. They confiscated evidence, including allegedly copied stickers with batch numbers.
According to the police, the doctor is being investigated on suspicion of issuing incorrect health certificates.
