Dr Jemal Khan

(CNS): Following his arrest last month, Dr Jemal (Jamie) Khan (47) from George Town has now been charged with more than 18 offences relating to assaults on a dozen women who came to him as patients. Khan, a chiropractor at a medical centre in Passadora Place, is charged with ten counts of indecent assault on women and eight counts of insulting behavior. Appearing in court Thursday, Khan was bailed to return on 28 July as the crown hadn’t supplied the necessary papers to the defence.

Khan was arrested following a complaint by a female patient who suspected he had taken unauthorised photographs of her during treatment.

A police investigation into the complaint uncovered other pictures of women and led to the doctor’s arrest. However, he was understood to still be practicing following his arrest, even though the police had informed the Council of Professions Allied with Medicine (CPAM), which regulates the chiropractic profession in the Cayman Islands.

On Thursday the court heard that Khan’s license had been suspended however, and that were he to continue practicing now, that would constitute a further offence. As part of his bail conditions he was ordered to reside at his own home, not to contact witnesses or to try and leave the jurisdiction after his passport was surrendered. Khan’s attorney Laura Larner, of Samson & McGrath said her client had close ties to the community owning his home and business and had Caymanian status having been here for more than twenty years.
