G20 Pathologist Found Guilty of Misconduct

August 31, 2010

The pathologist involved in a row over the death of a man at the G20 protests has been found guilty of misconduct by the General Medical Council.

A panel had been considering three unrelated post-mortem examinations carried out by Dr Freddy Patel between 2002 and 2005. It said his fitness to practise was impaired.

The GMC will consider sanctions later on Tuesday and on Wednesday.

Dr Patel examined Ian Tomlinson, who died during protests in London in 2009.

Will the family of Ian Tomlinson get justice now the CPS’s decision to not prosecute is in tatters?

I would suggest they don’t hold their breath.
