Speedy Trial of Dr Mattu

A fast trial, a fast judgement and a slow death of Article 6 of Human Rights Act 1998 as applied to disciplinary proceedings in National Health Service, UK.
Who would want to train for 14 or so years to become a consultant physician and risk possibility of unfair process either in hospital or court?

Please, click on the photograph to read the judgement.

NHS has style: either there is no disciplinary hearing at all (as in the case of locum doctors) or if there is one Article 6 does not apply.

"Sentence first, trial later" as in Alice in Wonderland.
