The conclusions were sent on Monday to the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), which has been investigating Nasirov's case, following an assessment of the quality of medical services provided by Feofania hospital to the suspect, NABU told UNIAN on the same day.

The conclusions state, among other things, that Feofania doctors had systematically and unreasonably exaggerated the severity of the state of Nasirov's health.

The ministry's experts concluded that there had been no objective reasons for making his diagnosis. They also found violations committed amid discharging the patient from that medical institution.
