The chief of the children’s surgery unit at the Georgios Gennimatas hospital in the northern port city of Thessaloniki has arrested over charges of allegedly demanding a 1,000 euro bribe in order to operate on a 20-year-old patient.

According to initial reports, the patient’s parents filed a complaint against the surgeon with the Greek Police’s Internal Affairs department. A sting operation was subsequently organized leading to the doctor’s arrest, officials said.

The surgeon was expected to face a prosecutor later. He’s the latest in a number of Greek doctors charged with soliciting bribes before agreeing to operate, a common practice in the country.
