Ubani Loses Injunction Hearing

A German doctor has lost his attempt to stop the two sons of a Cambridgeshire pensioner, who he accidentally killed on his first out of hours shift, talking to the media.

A court in Bavaria refused to grant Daniel Ubani the injunction against Rory and Stuart Gray, the sons of David Gray [pictured - right] from Manea, near Ely.

David Gray died when he was given ten times the recommended dosage of diamorphine back in 2008.

It was administered by Ubani when he was on his first out of hours shift in this country.

Dr Ubani sought the injunction after the brothers confronted him at a medical conference in Germany, the day after he was struck off the medical register in the UK.

Stuart Gray said: "It is a relief as well as a welcome result. It vindicates what Rory and I went and did in confronting Ubani"

The injunction would have prevented the brothers from saying that Doctor Ubani was found to have killed Mr Gray and banned them from telling others he was unfit to practise.

They would also have been banned from saying that Dr Ubani should not give talks to medical professionals and from going within 200 metres of the doctor.

A UK coroner recorded a verdict of unlawful killing in the inquest into the death of Mr Gray and accused Dr Ubani of gross negligence.

Doctor Ubani has already been struck off the UK medical register and is no longer able to practise in this country, and it recently emerged that he will also face a hearing in Germany.
