"Greece busts cancer drug theft gang, 21 arrests include doctors
ATHENS: Greece has broken up a criminal gang that stole cancer drugs from hospitals and smuggled them to other European countries for resale at a premium, potentially depriving patients of life-saving medicine, police said on Friday.
Twenty-one people aged between 22 and 70 have been arrested, among them doctors and nurses, according to the police.
They are suspected of using forged prescriptions to get hold of the drugs which they then sent to warehouses in Italy, Germany and Switzerland where they were sold at a big mark-up.
The nature of the crime suggested "particular contempt for society", police spokesman Theodoros Chronopoulos said. "They were guided by nothing but profit."
Most cancer drugs are available in Greece only through state hospitals because of their relatively high cost, and those are subsidised by the state.
The gang is believed to have been active since 2013, the peak of a debt crisis that sapped Greece's economic output and slashed spending in vital sectors including healthcare."
Incredible story. A sad one. A tragedy that the Greek seems to be very good at? No. I will take that back. Ot is just some Greeks r less ethical n driven only by money. The police that caught these heartless criminals r Greek too!
One other thing that caught my eyes is that doctor(s) is (are) involved too.
This case once again reminds me that corruptions n do evil greedy folks r everywhere n regardless of how well educated ones may be.
One of the 4 ancient civilizations is no different.
