Fugitive Rapist Doctor Finally Arrested

Police in Paraguay have arrested a fugitive Brazilian fertility doctor, Roger Abdelmassih, sentenced for sexually abusing 39 of his patients.


He had been on the run since 2011, after being convicted to 278 years in prison for assaulting women at his fertility clinic in Sao Paulo.

Abdelmassih was well-known in Brazil and treated many celebrities.
He had been living with his wife and two children in an exclusive district of the Paraguayan capital, Asuncion.

His arrest by officers of Paraguay’s National Anti-Drugs Secretariat followed a joint investigation with the Brazilian authorities.

Abdelmassih, 70, has been taken to the Brazilian border city of Foz do Iguacu and later will be transferred to Sao Paulo, where he committed his crimes.

Despite the long sentence, under Brazilian law he can only serve a maximum of 30 years.
‘Anaesthetic hallucinations’
