The soldiers of the Corps caught the doctor while he was pocketing the money for medical services carried out in a dental practice in Lariano, despite the fact that he was linked by an exclusive relationship with the ASL and was authorized by the same health company to carry out visits under the free intramural activity for a limited number of hours. In reality, the anesthetist, twice a week, practiced his profession in support of the dentist in carrying out some dental operations, from the simple treatment of a cavity to more complex operations, at the end of which he received the agreed compensation.

For these substances, for which the possession and destination has not been justified, the anesthetist will have to answer for the crime of possession for the purpose of dealing narcotic substances.
At the end of the formalities and searches carried out at the home and other offices, the doctor was placed under arrest in prison and taken to the institute
Velletri penitentiary, measures confirmed in the validation hearing.
The arrest is part of a series of investigative activities coordinated by the Velletri Prosecutor’s Office, which are still ongoing.
