Dr Joseph Chikelue Obi : "Charge General Medical Council with crimes against Humanity ; over the deaths of hundreds of Doctors ! (*Archived Content)
Speaking shortly after receiving correspondence from British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence , Professor Obi averred :
" In the current realm of Public International Law , a crime against humanity is an act of persecution (or any large scale atrocities) against a body (or class) of people ; be it murder, extermination, degradation ,humiliation ,torture, rape, political, racial, or religious persecution and other inhumane acts.
According to the Rome Statute , Crimes against Humanity are particularly odious offences in that they constitute a serious attack on human dignity or grave humiliation or a degradation of one or more human beings.
They are not isolated or sporadic events, but are part either of a government policy (although the perpetrators need not identify themselves with this policy) or of a wide practice of atrocities tolerated or condoned by a government or a de facto authority.
Murder, extermination , humiliation ,degradation , torture, rape, political, racial , or religious persecution and other inhumane acts reach the threshold of Crimes against Humanity whenever (and wherever) they are part of a widespread or systematic practice.
Isolated inhumane acts of this nature may constitute grave infringements of human rights, or (depending on the circumstances), war crimes - but may fall short of meriting the stigma attaching to the category of crimes under discussion.
On the other hand, an individual may be guilty of Crimes against Humanity even if he (or she) perpetrates any one or two of the offences mentioned above, or engages in one such offence against only a few civilians ; provided that those offences are part of a consistent pattern of misbehavior by a number of persons linked to that offender (for example, because they engage in armed action or rebellion on the same side or because they are parties to a common plan or for any other collective reason or happenstance).
Consequently , when one or more individuals are not accused of planning or carrying out a policy of inhumanity, but simply of perpetrating specific atrocities or vicious acts, in order to determine whether the necessary threshold is met one should use the following test: One ought to look at these atrocities or acts in their context and verify whether they may be regarded as part of an overall policy or a consistent pattern of an inhumanity, or whether they instead constitute isolated or sporadic acts of cruelty and wickedness.
The legal advice which I have (therefore) received is that a Statutory Body (like the GMC) can easily be charged with such a crime - in the very same way that a Government or Individual can.
In view of the huge number of Doctors Deaths which have been horrifically been linked to the GMC - I feel that it is high time that the International Criminal Court boldly stepped in and (decisively) brought all of these Murderous GMC Bigots to appropriate Justice.
This Rabid Medical Regulatory Holocaust must be stopped immediately ! "
