Medical practitioner Disciplinary proceedings. The claimant had been suspended by the fitness to practise panel of the defendant General Medical Council following findings that the claimant's fitness to practise had been impaired by misconduct relating to evidence he had given as an expert witness for the defence in a murder trial. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claimant's appeal, held that the panel's findings had been correct and that the sanction imposed on the claimant (a suspension of his registration for four months followed by a review after the expiry of the four-month suspension) had been appropriate.
