A Petah Tikva man was arrested by police on Monday on suspicion that he falsely posed as doctor and injected dozens of patients with Botox, police announced on Tuesday.
In a statement the Central District Police said an undercover investigation was opened into the suspect following a complaint filed with the Health Ministry that the suspect had forged medical licenses and business cards and was representing himself as doctor with a specialization in Botox and plastic surgery.
The 30-year-old suspect was questioned under caution by police on Monday. He was brought to the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday and released to seven days house arrest.
In the court’s decision to release the suspect the judge said the suspect had admitted under police questioning to the charges against him and is cooperating with police.
