GP Manish Shah was sentenced to three life sentences with a minimum term of 15 years at the Old Bailey after carrying out 90 sexual assaults on 24 patients by exploiting cancer concerns and carrying out unecessary examinations.
He was described by Judge Anne Molyneux as a “master of deception who abused his position of power”. The 50 year olds youngest victim was a 15 year old girl.
Shah targeted some of his victims by preying on their fears of cancer due to them having a family history of cancer.
He also referred to celebrity cases like Angelina Jolie having preventative mastectomy and Jade Goody in order to coerce his victims to undergo the invasive examinations.
