A Melbourne man has become Australia’s first dentist to be jailed for professional misconduct for repeatedly breaching orders not to practice.
Dr George Varnavides, 70, was sentenced to three months’ jail today after pleading guilty to being in contempt of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal …
Outside the hearing, counsel for Dr Varnavides, Jeremy Sear, said he did not know if his client would appeal.
You’d think a lawyer might know something like that.
UPDATE. Jeremy claims he was misquoted: “Refusing to answer a reporter with ‘I cannot comment on that at this stage’ is not the same as saying ‘I don’t know’, but may end up being written up as such anyway.”
UPDATE II. An “anonymous married man who definitely does not work in the legal profession” makes an appearanceat Spin Starts Here.
