The court confiscated Jean Mitrev's passport

A judge of a preliminary procedure accepted the proposal of the OJO in connection with the case of doctor Zhan Mitrev and made a decision to determine a precautionary measure to confiscate his travel document due to the risk of flight, the Basic Criminal Court Skopje confirmed for MIA.

After determining certain circumstances during the pre-investigation procedure, the Basic Public Prosecutor's Office Skopje, earlier, informed today that an order was passed to conduct an investigative procedure against a person who is suspected of having committed a crime - Fraud from Article 247 paragraph 4 in connection with paragraph 1 of the Criminal Code.

The suspect, as announced by the Public Prosecutor's Office, in the period from April 2020 to 2022, with the intention of a legal entity - a private health institution to obtain illegal property benefits, by falsely presenting facts, misled patients treated for COVID-19 with the method of hemofiltration.

The competent public prosecutor, taking into account the circumstances, submitted to the Basic Criminal Court Skopje a proposal for determining a measure to secure the suspect - confiscation of travel and other documents for crossing the state border, as well as a ban on issuing a new one. This measure was proposed due to the necessity to ensure the presence of the suspect and for the smooth conduct of the procedure, the Public Prosecutor's Office informs.

The Basic Public Prosecutor's Office Skopje told MIA that doctor Zhan Mitrev was summoned for questioning for certain circumstances in connection with a case formed after a whistleblower in the Skopje Public Prosecutor's Office.

On July 18 of this year, the prosecutor's office, following a tip-off, filed a case, after IRL published a study on the work of the clinical hospital "Zhan Mitrev" and doctor Zhan Mitrev.
