The Walloon doctor who is suspected of having forged about two thousand COVID-19 Safe Tickets (the Belgian corona pass) was arrested by the police on Wednesday evening.

He faces a jail term of 5 to 10 years if convicted.

The Belgian authorities have been investigating the doctor in recent days, who issued falsified corona certificates in Liège.

He is suspected of forgery.

The case came to light when it turned out that many fake certificates had been issued by the same doctor.

An investigation revealed that he had registered about two thousand false vaccinations.

In Belgium, residents need a corona pass to gain access to catering establishments.

Healthcare workers are also required to be vaccinated.

The issued corona passes have been declared invalid.

The Walloon Minister of Health Christie Morreale previously said that people with a false pass are still invited for vaccination.
