A Sri Lankan medical doctor who filmed Young females and stalked them has been given a community order and slammed with a three-month curfew.
Dr Buddhi Abeywardena, a 63-year-old GP from Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, was caught by security staff at the Bullring shopping centre in Birmingham where he was filmed up the skirts of young girls.
Although Abeywardena pleaded guilty at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court to outraging public decency he had something to say.
He said that he was unaware that his actions and behavior were an offence as he felt he was not hurting anyone.
However he is now electronically tagged, given a supervision order, must complete a sex offenders’ course and pay £180 costs and a £60 victim surcharge.
Also the General Medical Council has banned the doctor In a few months time he will have to face a
fitness to practise hearing test if he intends to continue in the profession.
It would be great if Doctor Abeywardena could behind this unfortunate incident and move on.
