G20 pathologist struck off24th August 2012
Pathologist Dr Freddy Patel, who conducted the first post-mortem tests on Ian Tomlinson who died in the 2009 G20 protests in London, has been struck off the medical register.
Dr Patel wrongly said Mr Tomlinson died from heart problems. Later medical reports suggested he had actually died from an injury to his liver that caused internal bleeding and then cardiac arrest. A medical tribunal had earlier concluded he acted with “deficient professional performance” over his examination. PC Simon Harwood, who had pushed Mr Tomlinson to the ground, was cleared of manslaughter but faces Met Police disciplinary proceedings.
