Magu additionally aforementioned several of those faux medical reports issued by doctors really frustrate unfinished cases in court.
“We can extend our investigation to doctors who provides pretend medical reports to people who face completely different types of corruption cases. therefore we tend to place them on the spot. Some would win Senate and gift serial medical results that they can’t seem in court. Some would be dropped at the court on a stretcher”.
”Many of those pretend medical reports are literally the explanations why several of our cases in court ar overstretched and continue for years endlessly,” Magu explained.
