English translation:Yes.
Explanation:
MD = Doctor of medicine, i.e. an academic title which does not automatically provide the right to practice medicine.
Leg. läkare = the holder of the legal right to practice medicine. He/she does mot have to be an MD (Med.lic. is OK.)

Example:
Somebody who is MD and Leg. läkare and does something so bad that his right to practice medicine is withdrawn remains MD but is no longer Leg. läkare!
