A tip of the hat to Caroline Lowbridge of the BBC for this. The start of the piece:
A mother whose son was circumcised without her consent said she was “furious” the doctor has only been suspended for a month.
The boy was taken to be circumcised by his Muslim grandmother, and Dr Balvinder Mehat did not check the mother consented to the procedure.
Dr Mehat was investigated by the General Medical Council and admitted the allegation at a misconduct hearing.
However, the tribunal decided he was “no risk to patients”. [J4MB emphasis]
Earlier this year a judge at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court refused me leave to bring a private prosecution against Dr Mehat. Even if a private prosecution had been permitted, the CPS would doubtless have taken over the case, then immediately drop it.
And so the criminal butchery and the needless suffering continue.
