The justice begins to inflict the first varapalos banks dotted by the case iDental, the alleged macroestafa plotted by the owners of this network of dental clinics, which closed its doors in 2018 without notice and left without treatment to thousands of patients. A court in Valladolid has just been condemned to pay € 5,000 to one of these financial, EVO, so that the patient can complete the treatment defective you received. This resolution is known just two weeks after magistrate Joseph Mata, who directs the investigation in the Audiencia Nacional, to meet with the Ministry of Health to intensify actions against creditors who harass those affected to pay their debts.
“we’re very satisfied with the sentence because it has supported one of our main arguments: that the financial must comply with the contract. The affected iDental have paid for a treatment and the financial you must pay the amount to finish the same, though, as is the case, is greater than the amount financed”, underlines Afecade, the platform of people affected by medical negligence that prompted this case. As recognised in the resolution of the court dated the 31st of October and to which has had access to THE COUNTRY, once it has been accredited the “defective compliance” of dental treatment and has been unsatisfactory in the prior claim against iDental, the law empowers the consumer to “exercise in front of the lender the same rights that you have against the supplier”.
This statement opens the door to hope for many affected, who have repeatedly denounced how the network of clinics left trailing with treatments half. In fact, a group of patients, we focused last July to the Ministry to claim that would help them to complete it. “The Government tells us that it is using the budgets you have inherited from the PP and that, therefore, can do nothing until it forms a new government stable,” he said then Benito Lupiañez, who chairs the association of affected of Seville.
listeners of the ‘case iDental’: “you have to sell the bike” the judge in The ‘case iDental’ intensifies the measures against creditors who harass the affected
The scandal iDental broke out last year. In a first moment, the simple closure of the network of clinics affecting thousands of people —the regions they came to calculate that the possible affected could climb to 400,000 in the country—, who saw how they interrupted their treatments or not even initiated. But the effects of the closure were only the tip of the iceberg. Customers began to report cases of malpractice, the use of inferior materials and implants poorly made.
And the judge Kills broke then on the scene. According to their research, the owners of iDental had hatched a complex scheme of companies to deceive patients, for people with few resources who were made to contract loans to finance their dental treatments. A money that, in addition, ended up in the coffers of the company, and later, according to the investigations of the National Police, was diverted to accounts controlled by the owners and is not intended to serve patients. The statement is now in its final phase, said the Ministry of Health after the meeting with the judge, who has already prosecuted those implicated by a derivative of the cause: a fraud of 23 million euros to the Social Security.
