4 sentenced for making fake Covid-19 certificates
A mobile court yesterday sentenced four people, including the owner of a diagnostic centre, to different terms of imprisonment for their involvement in delivering fake medical test reports in Barishal town.
Md Shahin, owner of Moon Medical Services, and his brother have been sentenced to six months in jail, while two technicians -- Shyam Saha and Shyamal Majumdar -- have been sentenced to three months behind bars.
Members of the detective branch of police sealed off the diagnostic centre during a drive in the afternoon.
Executive Magistrate Ziaur Rahman said the centre had been providing fake medical reports forging signatures of physicians.
The laboratory did not have legal clearance while some chemicals used in the lab failed to meet the standard, he said.
