The doctor was supposed to issue a fictitious certificate of injuries. He and his son defrauded insurance companies of millions


The principle consisted in the fact that the 73-year-old doctor issued fictitious certificates about injuries to the clients of his son (35), who worked as an insurance broker. They then applied for the insurance premium, and part of the money was to be handed over to the defendant after it was paid. According to the findings of the investigators, there were more than a hundred cases in the period from October 2011 to September 2014.

“Following a prior agreement with the intermediary of the insurance companies, doctor Z. Š. prepared false medical reports on injuries on behalf of his colleagues, on which he forged doctors’ signatures. This action of the defendants resulted in the unauthorized payment of insurance benefits in the amount of 5.1 million crowns,” said regional court spokeswoman Jana Rubášová.

Hundreds of thousands of fines

The plaintiff further accuses P. Š. of having arranged insurance policies with natural persons at several different insurance companies at the same time, while concealing the existence of previous contracts as part of the closing process. As a punishment, he proposed three years in prison, a ban on the activity of an insurance intermediary for a period of five years and a fine of half a million. For the doctor, the public prosecutor wants a four-year probation and a fine of 150,000.
