Polish prosecutors are investigating allegations that Stryker, a US medical equipment company, offered bribes to numerous hospital officials throughout Poland in order to secure contracts, according to the Associated Press.
“Dozens of private apartments and offices have been searched in recent months for evidence of allegations that between 2003-06 employees of the Polish branch of Stryker offered bribes to hospital heads to win tenders worth hundreds of thousands of złotys,” said Leszek Goławski, a prosecutor from Katowice.
The case is said to involve approximately 100 people and 51 hospitals.
