Public prosecutor of the Canton of Thurgau files charges against Walter Oberhänsli in connection with mail-order of non-prescription drugs and electronic prescribing
The Kreuzlingen public prosecutor filed charges against Walter Oberhänsli in his capacity as CEO of the Zur Rose Group. The charges are based on a report of a criminal offence lodged by Pharmasuisse and relate to two separate issues: mail-order distribution of non-prescription drugs and rewarding doctors for issuing electronic prescriptions between 2010 and 2015. The Board of Directors vigorously rejects the accusations made against its CEO and has announced it will support Walter Oberhänsli unreservedly in fighting the charges made against him and protecting his integrity.
Mail-order distribution of non-prescription drugs
Cooperation with doctors to promote electronic prescribing
As the contested business activity was already discontinued five years ago, the Zur Rose Group rules out an impact of the proceedings on the current business performance.
