The doctor accused of delivering false certificates so that his alleged patients can prove that they should not be vaccinated against the coronavirus, was released this afternoon. On Tuesday from noon a search was carried out in his office.
His followers from the Palermo neighborhood demonstrated there to support him and the situation ended in incidents with the police. Eduardo Yahbes, a doctor who claims to be anti-vaccines, was arrested Tuesday by the Buenos Aires police. This morning he refused to testify and after the indictment, he was released.
Eduardo Yahbes regained his freedom but is prohibited from returning to the raided office. In addition to being the headquarters of alleged crimes against health, it was not authorized for their purposes.
The investigation is in charge of the East Flagrancy Unit of the Public Prosecutor’s Office, with Federico Tropea in command. During the raid, where documents and cell phones were seized for analysis, at least 200 pre-printed certificates were found.
The investigation will seek to know how many of these certificates were delivered and if they were sold. Thus, the pediatrician will face charges for violation of measures against the pandemic (Art. 205 and 295 of the Penal Code) and for issuing false certificates.
In turn, his secretariat also refused to testify and was charged with the same charges. But that is not this, since it was discovered that the accused pediatrician was practicing the profession with expired registration, along with an extension due to the pandemic.
Yahbes filed an appeal against the Anmat and the Ministry of Health last year, requesting information on the components of the vaccine, arguing that they were “experimenting with people” on its effectiveness. This complaint was dismissed twice by the Justice.
Shortly after, he was indicted in a case for prescribing chlorine dioxide to a married couple of older adults, a product prohibited for any type of use by Anmat. These people died from the contagion of coronavirus in the Otamendi Sanatorium and the doctor was denounced by the Argentine Society of Infectious Diseases and the Fundación Host.
