Fresh charges filed against former Prague hospital chiefs under investigation for corruption

Fresh charges have been filed against the former director of Prague’s Na Homolce hospital, Vladimír Dbalý, and his onetime deputy, Michal Toběrný, Lidovy noviny reported on Saturday. The two, who were already under investigation for manipulating a CZK 57 million digital medical records tender, have now been charged with demanding a kickback in connection with the CZK 140 million purchase of a Leksell Gamma Knife in 2009. Some estimates put the amount paid at around a third more than the normal price in other countries, Lidovy noviny said.
