EFCC Says It Will Clamp Down On Doctors Who Write Fake Medical Reports For Persons Undergoing Trial

by Anita Ogona

The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has said the EFCC will begin to prosecute doctors that write fake medical reports for persons undergoing trial for corruption.

At a press conference held in Abuja yesterday the EFCC Chairman said the commission would henceforth “arrest and prosecute medical practitioners who provide fake medical reports to persons facing trial for corruption.”

He lamented that fake medical reports had added to the “many frustrations that attend the prosecution of corruption cases in court, as defendants frequently use such bogus reports to delay trial unnecessarily.”
