Quite possibly the worst person in the world
Ian Tomlinson pathologist Freddy Patel guilty of misconduct and dishonesty

Freddy Patel, the pathologist who conducted the first postmortem on Ian Tomlinson, has been found guilty by a medical tribunal of misconduct, deficient professional performance and dishonesty.

An independent fitness to practice panel said Patel had brought his profession into disrepute and had shown "a closed mindset" in April 2009 when he had attributed Tomlinson's death during the G20 protests to coronary heart disease.

Patel did not change his mind after he had seen video footage of Tomlinson being struck to the ground, despite finding fluid and blood in Tomlinson's abdominal cavity, or when three other pathologists considered Tomlinson had died as a result of bleeding from a traumatic liver injury caused by a push and fall to the ground.

He also lied about his status, allowing him to remain on the official Home Office register of forensic pathologists on which he was still listed when the City of London coroner Pa


Dr. Patel through history
1. He had deliberately concealed that he was not on a group practice of pathologists, a requirement to remain on the register after 2006
2. He had been suspended from the medical registry in 2010 and 2011
3. In 1999 he breached confidentiality by telling reporters a 30 year old man who died in police custody died of crack cocaine.
4. He botched the examinations of the bodies of a 5 year old (2002), a baby (2003) and a woman (2005)
5. In 2002, he botched the autopsy of Sally White, determining she died of consensual sex, despite her blood stained clothing. She was actually the first victim of Anthony White, the 'Camden Ripper.' Two other women were murdered later.

Guys a real piece of work

1. Is he highly incompetent pathologist, or does he have an agenda?

Either way, he is deceptive and therefore not an innocent.

Also either way, whoever has been in charge of firing him is also quite the fuckup himself, herself or themselves.

That said, the Sultan of Brunei and a few others are probably worse than Patel.
