KI monitors Italian legal case

[NEWS, 28 September 2012] It has been reported in the Swedish and international media that an employee of Karolinska Institutet is suspected of criminal conduct in Italy. The KI management is monitoring developments in the case - which mainly concerns matters of healthcare administration - but is taking no further action for the time being.

"At present we have no reason at all to doubt our colleague or the research he does here," says university director Bengt Norrving. "We're in regular touch with him and are keeping a watchful eye on how the legal case against him in Italy unfolds."
