After around 120 employees of an Italian hotel were vaccinated on May 21 at Munich Airport, the public prosecutor's office had several properties in Munich searched on Friday, as the »Focus« first reported.

Among other things, a doctor's office, a law firm and a pharmacy were searched, according to a press release from the public prosecutor's office.

According to the search decision of the Nuremberg Local Court, there is suspicion of embezzlement of vaccines, and of bribery and corruption in the healthcare system.

In this context, a pharmacist is accused of having provided the vaccine for the vaccination campaign.

One of the accused doctors is said to have bought the vaccine from the pharmacist.

Other doctors are said to have helped with the vaccination.

The accused lawyer is said to have drafted the contract for the vaccination campaign.

According to the public prosecutor's office, the vaccinated employees of the Italian hotel were not entitled to vaccination and were therefore not entitled to a vaccination against the coronavirus in Germany, regardless of the vaccination priority.

On May 21st, the employees of the Forte Village holiday resort flew to Munich to be vaccinated.

After a short stay, the hotel employees flew back to the island of Sardinia.

It is not yet clear why the management of the luxury hotel brought the team to Munich.

Both the Federal Ministry of Health and Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) had requested clarification.

"We don't want vaccination tourism to Germany," said Söder.
