BEIRUT: Financial prosecutor Judge Ali Ibrahim filed charges against the chief pharmacist at Rafik Hariri University Hospital on charges of fraud and tampering with medication expiry dates, a judicial source told The Daily Star.

Ibrahim issued a warrant for search and seizure against Mona Baalbeki after she had apparently gone into hiding.

The suspect was accused of changing expiry dates on drugs and selling them at lower prices at the government-run hospital, the source said.

Ibrahim referred the case to First Investigative Judge of Beirut Ghassan Oueidat for processing, the source added.
