Michael Schumacher medical files ‘stolen’

Michael Schumacher's confidential medical files are being offered 'for sale', his management warn.
Confidential medical files reportedly belonging to seven-time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher are being offered 'for sale', it has been warned.

Schumacher's publicist Sabine Kehm says the documents have appeared to have been made available for money but says it remains unclear whether they are genuine or not.

However, Ms Kehm says the documents will have been 'stolen' if they are verified as authentic and will press criminal charges to those responsible for the security breach.

"For several days stolen documents and data are being offered for sale. The offerer claims them to be the medical file of Michael Schumacher.

"We cannot judge if these documents are authentic. However, the documents are clearly stolen. The theft has been reported."

"The contents of any medical files are totally private and confidential and must not be made available to the public.

"We will therefore, in every single case, press for criminal charges and damages against any publication of the content or reference to the medical file."

The news comes a week after Schumacher was revealed to have left Grenoble Hospital in France, more than six months on from when a skiing accident left him in an induced coma.

He has since been transferred to Lausanne hospital in Switzerland to be closer to his family, though his current condition hasn't been confirmed as his management strive to ensure he can recover away from the public eye.

Schumacher, who retired for a second time at the end of 2012, suffered serious head injuries in the skiing accident on 29th December.

It is a disgusting act but unfortunately one that has resulted from the lack of any real information on Michael's condition. Whilst you can fully understand the family's wish for privacy there is always going to be intense interest in such a public figure and the lack of any meaningful disclosure has created the environment whereby some scumbag can profit. Undoubtedly some rag will buy it and publish, and then all other newspapers will be free to report on what someone else has reported, whilst trying to justify themselves that they weren't the ones who paid for it.
