    Indian-origin doctor Jayant Patel likely to face new trials in Australia
    18 may 2011

    Last year, Patel, dubbed as "Dr death" in Australian media, was jailed for seven years for the manslaughter of three patients and the grievous bodily harm of a fourth, while working at the Bundaberg hospital

    MELBOURNE: Indian-origin surgeon Jayant Patel could face another trial relating to the alleged removal of a healthy gland from a patient's neck, an Australian court was informed on Friday.

    Prosecutor Ross Martin SC confirmed in the Brisbane Supreme Court that the crown still intended to proceed with a charge of grievous bodily harm relating to patient Darcy Russell Blight.

    "I have no reason not to, subject to any negotiations that might arise," Martin was quoted as saying by the Australian news agency AAP.

    61-year-old Patel is now facing seven charges of fraud, and one of attempted fraud, relating to his application to work at Bundaberg Base Hospital.

    It is also alleged Patel hid the fact that he had been found guilty of gross negligence in the US and was banned from performing oesophagectomies and some abdominal procedures.

    Last year, Patel, dubbed as "Dr death" in Australian media, was jailed for seven years for the manslaughter of three patients and the grievous bodily harm of a fourth, while working at the Bundaberg hospital.

    Patel, who has not been represented by his lawyers for the last two hearings, told the court he wanted the matters to proceed as quickly as possible.

    Both matters were set down for review in a fortnight's time, after the deadline has passed for Patel to launch a High Court appeal relating to his convictions.

    Electricity Crisis in Pakistan

    The latest crisis that has Pakistani’s from all walks of life up in arms is the lack of electrical power throughout the country. While rolling blackouts or load shedding as its locally known has always been a staple of daily life in Pakistan, the problem has become acute in the last couple of years. In the second half of December, the situation got so bad that WAPDA & KESC (power generation entities in Pakistan) resorted to draconian levels of load shedding. The power cuts during this time amounted to 20-22 hours a day in most small cities and even cities like Karachi were seeing 18+ hours of load shedding.
