Romanian psychiatrist Bengescu Bellu Cristian Gheorghe was detained for 24 hours on Tuesday, November 18, by prosecutors from the Anticorruption department DIICOT. He is accused of allegedly prescribing high-risk drugs without having the right to do so.

“In order to obtain improper financial benefits, defendant Bengescu Bellu Cristian Gheorghe prescribed to a patient, over a period of 27 days, a high-risk drug substitution treatment of 6,840 tablets of 2.5 mg Sintalgon, although the necessary treatment for the patient, according to his medical files, was of 2,280 tablets for a period of 30 days,” reads the DIICOT statement.

In return, he allegedly received a total of RON 600 (EUR 135). Sintalgon is usually used to treat heroin addiction.
