The Ghana Medical and Dental Council (GMDC) is to withdraw the license of convicted Dr. Ali-Gabass’ from its register by the end of this month, in accordance with the Health Professional Regulatory Bodies Act, Act 857, the Registrar at the Medical and Dental Council, Dr. Elis Atsukpui has stated.

Dr. Gabass was sentenced by an Accra Circuit Court to twenty five years imprisonment for defiling a child under 16 years.

Dr. Atsukpui in an interview with Radio Ghana said the conviction is one of the basis for his license to be revoked, adding that the Council will begin the process soon.

Section 37(c) of Act 857 provides that where a health practitioner is sentenced to a term of imprisonment for a criminal offence, the matter will be referred to the Disciplinary Committee of the council to look into before revoking his or her licence.

The judge however dismissed and acquitted Dr. Gabass of the charge of unnatural carnal knowledge. She further indicated that her decision to give the maximum sentence was to deter others from engaging in the act.
