Meanwhile, Dr Abdulla Amin was suspended for four months, also for malpractice. Dr Amin is not permitted to practice medicine between May 6 and September 6 2024.

In a facebook post, attorney Kamal Ramkarran said: “It is the first time in more than 15 years that a doctor has been removed from the Register of Medical Practitioners for something done in medical practice and another suspended for such a long period.

“It happened because of the dedication and commitment of doctors elected to the Medical Council by their peers and because of effective and appropriate Regulations passed by the Government after representations made by the Council and input provided by it.”

He hopes that one day this can also occur in the legal profession.
