Bogus Russian doctor's sentencing delayed

Ed Jackson

The sentencing of a Russian refugee who used fake qualifications to scam work as a psychologist in Queensland hospitals has been adjourned.

Vincent Victor Berg was due to be sentenced at the Southport District Court on Thursday, but his legal team withdrew from the case citing an irreconcilable conflict.

Berg has been remanded in custody and his matter has been adjourned until June 14 to give him time to acquire a new barrister.
