From earlier information, it is clear that the proposal, in addition to the former director of the Dbalý Hospital, concerns its former deputy Michal Toběrný and Jan Valter, who appears in other cases as a collaborator of lobbyist Ivo Rittig.
The third branch of the case falls into the period from 2006 to 2011 and includes, among other things, the manipulation of the hospital’s tender for the supply of equipment for the workplace of guided neurosurgery.
According to Dbalý’s context, one of the accused is accused by the police of triple acceptance of a bribe and triple breach of duty in the administration of someone else’s property, for which he faces five to 12 years in prison. The second accused may receive the same penalty for accepting a bribe and for helping to break the duty. The other two prosecutions face charges of bribery as well as aid in breach of duty and can be imprisoned for up to six years.
Dbalý was already indicted in the third branch of the case, for allegedly damaging the hospital, together with other defendants, by at least 17.8 million crowns due to bribes received from suppliers. However, the public prosecutor withdrew the indictment from the Prague City Court for procedural reasons, in order to combine it into joint proceedings with another indictment, which he originally filed with the District Court for Prague 5 in connection with this case. The case therefore returned to the stage of investigation. .
The Prague City Court wanted to stop this prosecution of Dbalý earlier, arguing that, given the previous two cases, there is almost no room for a doctor to increase his sentence significantly. Matula, however, disagreed and successfully filed a complaint.
Sixty-two-year-old Dbalý is currently serving a ten-year sentence in prison, imposed on him by the Prague High Court last month for the first two branches of the corruption case. Part of the final judgment, according to which the doctor took millions in bribes for manipulating hospital tenders, is the forfeiture of property and the obligation to participate together with other convicts in compensation for damage to the hospital in the total amount of 112 million crowns. Toběrný’s primary surgeons sentenced the courts to six years in prison and imposed a fine of five million.
Penalties do not add up in the Czech legal system, so Dbalý can be sentenced to a maximum of 12 years in prison for accepting bribes. However, in similar cases, the Criminal Code allows, under certain conditions, to increase the upper limit of the penalty rate by a third.
