Doctor cleared of killing woman during abortion

A Nigerian-born doctor, Dr Adedayo Adedeji, has been cleared of complicity in the death of a woman, who bled to death after travelling from Ireland to the UK for an abortion.

Dr. Adedeji,63, and two nurses, Gemma Pullen, 32, and Margaret Miller, 55, all practising in a private clinic, the Marie Stopes Clinic, were formally acquitted of the gross negligence manslaughter of Aisha Chithira, 32, after the prosecution offered no evidence.

Ms Chithira was 22 weeks pregnant when she underwent the operation at the Marie Stopes clinic in Ealing, west London, on 21 June 2012, and according to Daily Mail’s report, she collapsed several hours later while travelling in a taxi in Slough, Berkshire, and died of ‘extensive internal bleeding’.

The report said the prosecutor Sally O’Neill QC told the court the decision to drop the manslaughter charge was taken following a review of the case, and gave no detailed reasons for the decision.

However, while Dr. Adedeji will not further take part in the case, both Pullen and Miller still face the charge under the Health and Safety Act and are due to stand trial at the Old Bailey on June 8 this year.
