During her hearings, this young woman born in 2000 said she wanted to "help out those around her" and not to have been paid, according to the prosecution.
She admitted to having established 24 false health passes for 16 beneficiaries, "members of her family and family of her friends".
According to the same source, she also admitted to having transmitted to 4 beneficiaries 5 false passes generated by another contractual agent whose identity she did not reveal.
The use of his phone made it possible to find vital cards and identity cards.
Connections while the vaccination center is empty
This young contract worker, hired on September 1, according to the newspaper Sud Ouest which revealed this information, has no criminal record. The alert was given on Sunday by a firefighter from the vaccination center who notably noticed connections when the center was empty of any patient. Certificates in the name of people not registered on Doctolib had also been found in the trash of the computer, explains the prosecution. Suspicions fell on two contractual agents but the second, also placed in police custody, was quickly exonerated. The investigation continues into the beneficiaries of the false documents.
The prosecution specifies that 5 procedures are currently followed in the jurisdiction of Bordeaux for facts of this type, 3 entrusted to the judicial police and 2 to the gendarmerie.
One of them gave rise to the opening of a judicial investigation which has so far resulted in two indictments, one of which was placed in pre-trial detention.
Two other young temporary workers at the Bordeaux-Lac vaccination mega-center, aged 18 and 20, will be tried in corrections in January in Bordeaux after being arrested in August for having established and issued false vaccination certificates, with an overall benefit exceeding the thousand euros.
