Up to three years in prison. That is the sentence that the pediatrician of the boy named Ondrej faces because she allegedly saw the scars on the boy’s body but she did not report a possible case of child abuse to authorities, which is something pediatricians normally do and it is not a violation of their oath.

However, mother of the boys Klara Maurerova who is the major suspect in the case says that the doctor had absolutely no idea, because the scars were under the boy’s underwear, the Mlada fronta Dnes daily reported.

However, a plastic surgeon who was heard by the court as an expert said that if a doctor performs a regular mandatory health check on a patient [once every six months] of THIS age, he or she should notice, or in other words, look everywhere, so even scars on private parts should not go unnoticed.

She [the doctor] is absolutely innocent. All that she did was trust me, Mauerova said, defending the pediatrician.
