Warsaw gynaecologist arrested

From: NPE
A Warsaw gynaecologist was arrested by officers of the Border Guard this week for faking certificates of pregnancy for the girlfriends of illegal immigrants. The 43-year-old doctor was detained after the scam came to light in which he would prepare the documents which would then be used to assist in the immigrants applications for residence here.

As fathers-to-be, their cases were looked on more positively by officials. Apparently some of the immigrants also married the Polish women involved.

“We know of at least a dozen such cases. It was immigrants from Africa that were taking advantage of this method,” commented Agnieszka Golias, press officer for the Border Guard. The man has been charged with three counts of faking medical documents and faces anything from 6 months to ten years in prison.
