The body responsible for registration the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency says all doctors including Dr Dhaimat must sign an annual declaration that they do not have pending criminal proceedings in relation to sex offences.
The Agency says when Dr Dhaimat was registered to practice in the ACT in May 2008 he would have required a certificate of good standing from overseas medical authorities and a clearance from the Australian Federal Police (AFP).
Previously the lawyer for Dr Dhaimat has told the magistrates court he has only practiced medicine in Jordan and Australia.
The AFP received paperwork relating to an extradition request from Interpol on April 13, 2013.
UPDATE: They’ve let him out on bail again! I wonder which country he’ll work in next?
