Three hospital workers charged will selling forged dyslexia certificates

Three employees at two public hospitals in Athens face criminal charges over the sale of forged documentation certifying that patients were dyslexic.

Prosecutor Poppy Papandreou issued criminal charges against the three unnamed women, who worked at the Sismanogleio and Penteli Children’s hospitals. They are suspected of having sold dyslexia certificates to the parents of children preparing to sit university entrance exams so that they would receive preferential treatment.

It is believed that the forged certificates cost between 300 and 900 euros, while the women are suspected of having sold more than 100 documents from 2007 to 2012.
