Pharmacist who made sexually inappropriate remarks let off due to ‘restrictive’ background
A PHARMACIST who made crude remarks to colleagues has been let off with a warning because he came from a ‘restrictive’ Muslim background.
Khalil Jamil asked one of the women about her favourite love making position and quizzed another about the mating habits of her horses.
The General Pharmaceutical Council panel found Jamil also acted inappropriately by making the comments and standing too close to his assistants - but ruled his behaviour was not sexually motivated.
Panel chairman Patrick Malmo QC said: “He felt the source of this behaviour in 2009, was that he comes from a very restrictive background, with little social life, and none at all outside of his own community.
“He lacked social skills, and had little knowledge of how one should be when working with colleagues.
“He was unable to distinguish between friendliness and over familiarity.”
