Salah Mohammed al-Tubaigy

London,18 October 2018: In response to queries about Dr Salah Mohammed al-Tubaigy, FFLM Registrar Prof RT Shepherd states:

Dr al-Tubaigy applied for and was granted overseas membership of the Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine in October 2009. However, his membership lapsed in July 2010 when he failed to renew his subscription. At that time, he also lost his right to use the Faculty’s post-nominals.

The Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine has worked tirelessly since its foundation in 2006 to establish and to improve standards in Forensic Medicine. The Faculty’s stated aims are:

  • To promote for the public benefit the advancement of education and knowledge in the field of forensic and legal medicine.
  • To develop and maintain for the public benefit the good practice of forensic and legal medicine by ensuring the highest professional standards of competence and ethical integrity.

The Faculty has fought hard since its inception, 12 years ago, for ethical medical practice, for justice and for human rights in the United Kingdom and throughout the world.

The Faculty condemns in the strongest possible terms the involvement of any doctor in violence, torture or homicide.
