Appeal Dismissed – CCJ Finds Doctor In Breach
The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) today gave reasons for allowing an appeal in the case of The Medical Council of Guyana v Jose Ocampo Trueba. The CCJ also ruled that the Crown Office Rules of 1906 were no longer applicable and that Guyana’s Civil Procedure Rules 2016 applied to all civil proceedings. In September 2017, Dr Ocampo filed an application in the High Court of Guyana seeking judicial review of the Medical Council’s refusal to grant his application for full registration as a medical practitioner. In his application, he stated that he was unaware of the reasons for the refusal and that he had not been given an opportunity to be heard prior to the refusal.
