The Public Prosecution Office announced Wednesday that it had ordered the pretrial detention of the top three managers at Shwerif hospital for the fraud of LD 3.5 million.
The fraud took place as part of the procedures in contracting for the supply and installation of operating supplies for the hospital.
The fraud was conducted by the General Manager, his Deputy and the Acting Controller. They defrauded the state for the purpose of obtaining illegal material benefits upon implementation, including the conspiracy of those in charge of the administration with the commissioner of one of the contracted implementation agents.
The fraudsters had agreed not to supply the contracted supplies and equipment while submitting official documents that contradict the truth stating that medical equipment and supplies had been received, amounting to LD 3,560,000.
