Court rejects compensation for family of Heparin murder victim

The Czech hospital at the centre of one of the worst murder cases in the country’s history does not have to pay compensation of 8.8 million crowns to the remaining family of one of the victims, a court ruled on Friday. The so-called heparin murderer Petr Zelenka worked at the hospital at Havlíčkův Brod and administered deadly doses of the anti blood clotting agent. He was convicted of murdering seven patients and trying to kill another 10 and given a life sentence. The victim’s family claimed the hospital should have reacted faster to the first suspicious cases.
