G20 pathologist banned for dishonesty

Dr Freddy Patel, the pathologist who conducted the post-mortem examination on Ian Tomlinson, who died after being pushed to the ground by PC Simon Harwood in 2009, has been given a four-month ban for dishonesty, and misconduct.

The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service has suspended Dr Patel from practising after he omitted key findings from the body of a murder victim whom he said had died from natural causes.

He has been removed from the official register of approved forensic pathologists, and faces further sanctions.
