(CMR) Chiropractor Jemal Abdullah Khan was deported via the WestJet flight today directly to his homeland of Canada.
The disgraced chiropractor was sentenced back in November 2016 to four years imprisonment for indecently assaulting nine female patients and taking photographs of two patients. At the time Justice Charles Quin described the offenses as gross breaches of trust because the victims were all vulnerable patients.
Khan’s offenses were carried out on the treatment table in his offices in Pasadora Place in George Town. They occurred between August 2014 and February 2016.
Justice Quin imposed separate sentences for each of 11 counts, but made them run concurrently. He said the most serious sexual assault offense could attract a life sentence in the U.K. In Cayman, the maximum is 10 years. He set his starting point at seven years and then considered mitigating factors that reduced the sentence to six years.
The judge agreed with the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Patrick Moran that the hard drive with the images should be destroyed.
Khan qualified as a chiropractor in Canada in 1996 and came to Cayman in 1998. He was granted Caymanian status in 2003.
We have been reliably informed that since he was granted his status by the Governor in Council AKA Cabinet in what would be coined “the mass status grants of 2003” he was able to leave the jurisdiction with this Cayman passport and his status is irrevocable.
We have since reached out to the Home Affairs Ministry for confirmation on this point.
