Chen Levitt, daughter of one of the Israeli doctors investigated in the scandal of Sabyc clinic trafficking human eggs, accuses the Romanian Police of a "disgraceful treatment",Ynetnews.com informs. Chen Levitt says the doctor's family is worried because he was forbidden to leave Romania after the Monday hearings, when he and other 30 persons had to answer questions regarding their work.
"We are very stressed out. Nevertheless, we aren't speaking with him every single minute," said Chen Levitt, daughter of Prof. Nathan Levitt, to Ynet on Tuesday. Levitt is among the Israelis being investigated in Romania for allegedly trafficking in human eggs and is, therefore, not being allowed back to Israel at the current time. His daughter claims that the Israeli medical community has not come to her father's side out of fear, Ynetnews.com reads.
"The treatment of the Romanian police was disgraceful," she said. "My father told us that all of a sudden in the middle of the day, a group of masked men entered the clinic armed with Kalashnikovs. My father, who was just in the middle of a medical procedure, didn't know how to respond. Everyone was very alarmed. There was hysteria there. Many people cried, and one woman fainted," Chen went on for the publication.
