    I wonder did the staff that saw the suspect behaviour, did nothing, then decided to discuss it a year later leave the country too?

    edit . a google search on him gets, "Some results may have been removed under data protection law in Europe. Learn more". I wonder what links he applied to be removed before this current scandal

    It won’t end with Naas either

    Dr Aamir Zuberi also worked for several years at another leading Irish hospital prior to taking up employment in Naas.

    Yeah, the question (apart from perpetrator who is a psychopath) is why leave the questioning. I know I’m my heart and my soul I would have questioned earlier… maybe not quite early enough. I tend to be the sort who gets myself very unliked at times as I do not stand for any kind of abuse, be it directly intended or consequential to a condition such as mental illness or alcoholism etc, be it to others or myself. It’s the only way to respect both yourself and others at same time.

    Maybe a younger nurse or cater etc just hadn’t got time or experience to come to this type of thinking and collective think-sense has ab awful lot to do with with any individual does not have the the courage to put the hand up. - serving exiled talent

    the courage to put the hand up

    Somewhat unfortunate phraseology there

    Bring back the :pac:

    Has the added effect of giving people more reason to mistrust of the medical community at a time like this.

    Sick fucker, I hope to God he wasn't unsupervised around minors under anaesthesia.

    I know there is a tendency to want to 'send them back where they came from' if possible, and this guy is already back where he came from, but money spent extraditing, trying and convicting, and incarcerating this guy would be money well spent in my opinion.

    That said, perhaps passing on the info to the Pakistani police might result in a rather more swift and decisive punishment.

    I wouldn't bank on it ,the Pakistan legal system is worse than a lot of places , corrupted and favours those who are well off ,

    In these cases I'd be happy to see the army ranger wing tasked with returning him here , but in saying that if he was brought back by legal means he could declare himself an asylum seeker and were stuck with him

    I'd be surprised if Ireland even has an extradition treaty with Pakistan.

    How did the guards know to contact the victim? I mean were there witnesses, video, or did the perpetrator admit to it somehow?

  • Registered Users Posts: 224 ✭✭PicardWithHair

    Holy F*ck !

    Witnesses ?? wtf was going on ??

    Have a little look into how their international airline pilots get "licensed", scary stuff. Basically it's "show me the money".

    Whilst the story sickens me I'm equally as sickend by the fact nurses witnessed this and did nothing. It leaves serious questions unanswered as in are these people still "caring" for patients to this day?

    Plenty of questions all right but will there ever be answers?

    I meant to watch this but missed it. As bad as it sounds, there may have been worse abuse going on in other HSE facilities. We're not talking about ancient history here either. What will happen to the staff who knew about this and did nothing about it?

    "At least 18 intellectually disabled residents of a Health Service Executive-run centre in Co Donegal were subjected “to sustained sexual abuse” during a 13-year period with the full knowledge of staff and management, an unpublished investigation has found.

    The report documented more than 108 incidents of “devastating” abuse perpetrated on mainly non-verbal adults by another resident, given the pseudonym “Brandon” in the report"

    Evidently you never heard of Jimmy Savile or Dr Shine.

    It really makes me question the culture in Irish hospitals. I want to move back to Ireland with my wife in a few years, she works in surgery, if this happened here, in the us, there would be no hesitation in reporting on a senior but somehow in Ireland things still get swept under the carpet. I don't want her working in such an environment to satisfy my desire to come home. At best it doesn't exactly sound collaborative. Is it an Irish thing? We still just defer to authority?

    The vast majority of Non Irish Healthcare workers here are very professional, very caring, decent, good at their jobs and well qualified to do the work.

    It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

    Quite telling on a story about a doctor sexual abusing patients, that's the post that gets a response from you.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,533 ✭✭✭Jequ0n

    This is a very strange story. So the only evidence available is witness testimony? And the victims were informed that they had been sexually assaulted even though this could not be proven (yet?). This is exactly the angle that causes nothing but panic.

    Typical reactions on thread we well…making sure very patient at the hospital a potential witness, calling the accused a psychopath etc etc.

    What about calming down and waiting for an official statement to be issued, now that the hospital and gardai need to respond?

    I think we're low on rangers with the requisite complexion needed to fade into the Pakistan background.

    And as Ive garnered from other threads on here there is never ever any context where changing ones skin tone to appear as another race is ever acceptable. Ever.

    So the Pakistan security forces would see those big Irish heads a mile off, unfortunately.
