- The mother is not, at this stage, prosecuting the doctor.
- The General Medical Council (GMC) has concluded an investigation, and decided that Mehat will face a disciplinary tribunal.
- Saimo Chahal QC, a human rights lawyer, has written to the police, giving them 14 days to reopen their criminal investigation of Mehat. If the police fail to do this, then she will instigate a judicial review.
This will not be the first time Mehat has had a brush with the criminal justice system. In 2009 the Nottingham Post carried the story that he owned a portfolio of more than 35 properties in the city, and had paid a fine and costs of over £20,000 in relation to safety issues at one of them, where he had student tenants. An extract:
The city council said it pursued Dr Mehat before taking the matter to Nottingham Magistrates’ Court.
The statement said: “Despite being given a number of warnings by the city council Dr Mehat failed to manage the property correctly or to apply for the appropriate licence.”
