Hospital doctors, manager to face graft charges

Six doctors at the general hospital on Samos, and a former top manager of the institution, are to face charges of graft, embezzlement of state funds and tax evasion after an investigation by the Financial Police indicated a discrepancy of 2.7 million euros between the collective income they declared to the authorities in the period 2005 to 2011 and the total level of deposits in their bank accounts.

The doctors facing charges are a gynecologist, two anesthesiologists, two orthopedic surgeons and a pathologist.
