Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on 1 February 2019 at the High Court of Lille in France, Dr Ahmad was convicted of several offences, including unauthorised importation of drugs-trafficking, unauthorised possession of drugs and unauthorised acquisition of drugs, committed between January 2017 and 15 August 2017 in Neuville en Ferrain in the district of Nord, after that in Belgium and the Netherlands.

It is alleged that Dr Ahmad was sentenced to a term of imprisonment of six years, excluded from French territory for a period of ten years and to pay a substantial fine. It is alleged that by reason of this conviction Dr Ahmad’s fitness to practise is impaired.


This reflects the allegation as it stands at the start of the hearing. The allegation may be amended as the hearing proceeds and when findings of fact are made by the tribunal.


All decisions are published online within 28 days of the conclusion of the hearing.
