2 fake Chinese doctors nabbed in Pasay
Two Chinese nationals were arrested in Pasay City on Friday for pretending to be doctors. The suspects were identified by the Southern Police District as Yang Yongsheng, 53, and Liu Yong, 49. The arrest stemmed from a complaint by 26-year-old Chinese national Zheng Haohan who sought a consultation from Yang due to stomach ache and diarrhea. Yang wrongly prescribed the victim a Chinese medicine and told him to return for a surgical operation of his genitals. Following the complaint, agents conducted an operation, which led to the arrest of the two who failed to present their licenses to practice as medical practitioners. The suspects are now under police custody while charges for violation of Section 12, Article II of Republic Act No. 2382 (Medical Act of 1959) and Republic Act No. 9711 (Food and Drug Administration Act of 2009) are being prepared against them.
