Oz-Indian surgeon 'Dr Death' to appeal conviction of manslaughter in June

Brisbane, Tue, 03 Apr 2012 ANI

Brisbane, Apr 3 (ANI): Lawyers representing Jayant Patel, an Indian-origin surgeon in Australia, will appeal against his conviction for manslaughter in a special sitting of the High Court in Brisbane in June.

The Supreme Court in Brisbane found Patel guilty of the manslaughter of Gerry Kemps, 77, James Phillips, 46, and Mervyn Morris, 75, as well as guilty of causing grievous bodily harm to Ian Rodney Vowles, 62.

Patel was jailed for seven years in July 2010.

The convictions are related to his time as a surgeon at Bundaberg Base Hospital between March 2003 and April 2005, The Courier Mail reports.

The High Court of Australia published a list of matters on its website that will be heard in June.

Patel's case was one of two listed to take place in Brisbane.

According to the report, Patel took his case to the Court of Appeal in Brisbane early last year, where he sought to have his conviction overturned. The appeal was, however, dismissed.

But Patel's legal team travelled to Canberra in February this year, where they were granted special leave to have an appeal heard before the full High Court. (ANI)
