The fake COVID certificates scam for deniers for 150 euros: "Do you have a favorite vaccine?"
It is about of the outcome of the 'Jenner' operationwhich uncovered last January a network that provided false COVID passports and PCR tests to celebrities and criminals, reports the Madrid Police Headquarters.
In this fourth and final phase of the operation, two other people have also been arrested who allegedly acted as a collector and intermediary, respectively, between the toilets involved and the network of clients, related to criminal environments in the capital.
The two detained La Paz workers were in charge, according to the Police, of introducing the people indicated by the framework in the National Vaccination Registry.
Depending on the doses of the vaccine that the client requested for their registration, they charged a higher or lower amount. In order to make these recordings in the system, they managed to steal the personal access codes of other workers in the same hospital and used them for several months.

In the list of investigated clients were names such as the singer Omar Montes and the actress Verónica Echegui.
