Standard Psychiatric Procedure

Psychiatrist Dayananda Rajapakse, of Braintree, Essex in the UK, hypnotised a female patient, encouraged her to masturbate herself in front of him, digitally penetrated her, got her to remove her clothes, fondled her breasts, and then had oral sex with her. He has been suspended for nine months.

Not referred to the police for sexual assault, not banned from practising any form of medicine for life, not hounded out of the country... just suspended for nine months.

The General Medical Council after much deliberation decided that his conducted amounted to a serious departure from the standards expected of a registered medical practitioner. You don’t say.

Rajapakse maintained that his behavious was standard psychiatric procedure.
