Madan v General Medical Council: Admn 2001

There had been an interim suspension by the Interim Orders Committee of the GMC. Counsel for the GMC conceded the application of Article 6.
Held: Newman J: ‘For myself, I regard it as highly likely that the interim suspension hearings engage Article 6. I regard the fact that it has not been argued fully as no impediment in the way in which we must proceed in this application and whilst I do not have any deep reservations as to the applicability of the Article I would have preferred full argument being to see the exact working out of the Strasbourg jurisprudence and to identify the precise point at which, and the precise reasons why, Article 6 is engaged.’
