On Saturday, the Egyptian authorities decided to imprison the owner of a physiotherapy center, Youssef Khairy, who called himself “a plumber of humankind”, for 15 days pending investigations on charges of forging his personal identity and practicing the profession of physiotherapy without a license.
The security services had arrested the accused on Thursday evening, and closed his private center after it was found that he was not a graduate of the Faculty of Physiotherapy, and that the center was operating without a license.
Investigations also revealed that Youssef Khairy always appears in various media to promote himself, and he also took advantage of his relationships with some artists and their frequent visits to his treatment center to delude patients of his ability to treat spine, neck and joint pain, tendonitis, nerves and disc by cracking and cracking parts of the body.
Deceit and take advantage of celebrities
In addition, it was found that the accused succeeded in deceiving a number of artists and celebrities and took advantage of their need for treatment, and obtained large sums of money from them, and took pictures of them inside the center and promoted himself through these pictures through social networking sites, which prompted many patients to deal with him and be assured of his efficiency.
For her part, the singer accused Sandy Youssef Khairy of defrauding her, stressing that she was treated by him and almost suffered a quadriplegic and died.
Not restricted to guild schedules!
For his part, the head of the Physicians Syndicate, Sami Saad, explained that the union received many complaints against the accused, including a complaint by one of the famous artists, who confirmed that she was almost paralyzed.
Saad added that the syndicate discovered that the accused was not bound by its schedules, and did not graduate from the Faculty of Physiotherapy, so the authorities were informed, which rushed and launched a campaign to raid the center and arrested Youssef Khairy and closed his center.
