Surgeon deported after sex party turns deadly

28 August 2014, 09:04

Sydney – An Australian neurosurgeon jailed after two prostitutes died following cocaine-fuelled sex sessions at his home has been deported to his native Malaysia, authorities said on Thursday.

Suresh Nair was jailed in 2011 after pleading guilty to a number of charges, including supplying cocaine to Victoria McIntyre, aged 23, who died in hospital after a marathon sex and drug session at his apartment in 2009.

He also pleaded guilty to manslaughter, by gross negligence, in failing to call an ambulance for another woman, Suellen Domingues-Zaupa, aged 22, who died at his home in 2009 in a similar incident.

It has since emerged that Nair was a heavy cocaine user himself and continued to operate despite the overdose deaths of the two prostitutes.

Nair was released from prison on 31 July and immigration minister Scott Morrison said the surgeon, who had lived in Australia since he was a child but never took up citizenship, was kicked out of the country on Tuesday.

"I take very seriously my role in protecting the Australian community from the risk of harm by non-citizens who engage in criminal conduct", Morrison said in a statement to AFP.

A investigation by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Fairfax Media this week claimed Nair was allowed to continue performing complex operations despite authorities suspecting he was a cocaine addict.

The ABC detailed horror stories of patients left traumatised after botched operations, with one patient claiming she had her wrong vertebrae operated on, which left her with a crippling back problem.

The investigation claimed authorities were aware of Nair's problems as early as 2004 but his licence was only revoked in 2010 when he was arrested.

In response, the New South Wales state government this week said it would tighten hospital complaint rules.
