No criminal investigation into USZV

Gino Bernadina Spokesman for the Public Prosecutor Office


PHILIPSBURG – The Prosecutor’s Office will not initiate a criminal investigation based on the complaint filed by Dr. Petit with the National Detectives Agency on September 1, concerning alleged financial malpractice committed by the Minister of Health, Social Development and Labour, and the Director of the Social and Health Insurance Executive Body USZV.

All parties concerned have been officially informed today, Friday, November 25, about the decision.

The Prosecutor’s Office is of the opinion that there is no reasonable suspicion of guilt of any criminal offense, which should be the basis to start a criminal investigation. The complaint, which was also widely reported in the local press, primarily concerns alleged breaches of an administrative or civil law nature.
