A doctor from Bochum has had to answer in court since Friday for allegedly incorrect certificates for exemption from the corona mask requirement. At the start of the trial at the Bochum district court, the 77-year-old denied the allegations. He accused the public prosecutor's office of "fantasizing". There were no incorrect certificates.
According to the indictment, the doctor was guided by political - and thus non-medical - reasons, since he did not agree with the regulations for wearing respiratory masks. A verdict is expected in early November.
