PSD MPs under investigation for alleged abuse of SIGIC scheme

Two PSD MPs are under investigation for alleged abuse of the government’s SIGIC scheme.
An anonymous tip-off has alerted PJ police to the possibility that the MPs were using the scheme to divert business to two Coimbra clinics.
Also under investigation are the clinics, and the ARS health authority. SIGIC is a scheme which involves the government paying for private surgeries when state hospitals cannot effect them.
