Dr Ozone's Past Catches up with Him

Hellfried Sartori, known to most as the notorious Dr Ozone who used industrial solvent to treat terminal illnesses, has been found to have a history of alleged fraud, malpractice and corruption spanning more than two decades in 14 American states.

Sartori, a convicted felon and discredited Austrian doctor has served five years jail in Virginia from 1999 and nine months in a New York jail in 1996.

Hellfried Erwin Sartori is also known as Professor Abdul-Haqq Sartori. He migrated to the US in 1976. While Sartori is hailed by some of his terminally ill patients as a potential saviour after they were deserted by conventional medicine, to the others, he is cynical, motivated only by greed inflicting great pain on patients using processes without any medical validity.

His unorthodox health remedies have come under investigation following the deaths of cancer sufferers in Australia and Thailand.

He was arrested in the city of Chiang Mai in Thailand this week on charges of fraud and unlicensed practice of medicine without a licence. Sartori however continues to claim his innocence.

WA police are waiting for results of pathology and toxicology tests obtained from the post mortems of seven cancer patients in Perth who died in quick succession in May and June 2005.

While Sartori himself was not in Australia at the time following the barring of his entry into the country from May 2005, police are investigating whether the six deaths were a result of receiving treatments by local adherents of Sartori's practices.

In the late 1980s Sartori eluded a possible long jail term when the family of a US patient, who died after a long span of enduring his treatment, did not want to have him charged with manslaughter because they were too distressed.

According to a legal source,"He would be still in jail now had he been convicted of manslaughter in Virginia where the charges were brought. He would have got 20 years."

That would have helped to curtail the damage that this medico inflicted on patients in several US states and overseas.
