This painful situation occurred in Seville and based on the local media, the alleged perpetrator is a 64-year-old doctor. It is indicated that he works in various offices and it all began when a patient filed a complaint.
What the woman points out is that she came for a consultation for a chest ailment. On going to the office, the doctor proceeded to perform the auscultation but she felt something strange. What he noticed is that the doctor had his phone in one of the top pockets of his gown and it was on. An argument immediately ensued and at that moment he realized that he was recording it.
There are more than 100 victims!
When he went to the authorities to present his complaint, a search was made of the doctor and all his belongings. At that time it was discovered that on his computer he had videos with more than 100 patients whom he had dedicated himself to recording in the same way and without their consent.
While he did not always use his phone because the inspection of his office found that he had a pen with a mini recording camera. With this device he also dedicated himself to spying on his patients.
Based on what has been identified, this improper action was carried out at the time of auscultating the chest or inspecting the vaginal or anal area of the women. In addition, he was not limited to his office because he also offered home consultations and there he also proceeded in the same way.
This is a very sensitive subject. At the moment the doctor is in custody and through the videos and the clinical files they are trying to find the whereabouts of the affected women.
