A Tokyo hospital director was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of defrauding a company executive after falsely diagnosing him with a sexually transmitted disease, police said.
Michinari Hayashi, 69, head of Shinjuku Central Clinic, allegedly swindled about ¥26,000 in total from the executive in his 60s from Kokubunji, Tokyo, by falsely diagnosing him as testing positive for chlamydia following a blood test. He then sold him medicine more than a dozen times between September and December 2012 to treat the disease.
