Doc chiefs list Shine's perv acts.

Byline: By EOIN REYNOLDS

PERV doctor Michael Shine was yesterday effectively branded a sex pest by the Medical Council.

The Co Louth doctor was struck off the medical register on November 24 after an investigation by the Fitness To Practice Committee.

The council yesterday revealed the reasons for its action against the doctor.

It said the study found Shine had abused his position by:

MAKING sexual advances and suggestions to nine young boys

INDECENTLY assaulting those boys

INAPPROP R IATE medical exams on the boys

FAILING to treat the boys with due dignity and respect

BREACHING trust in a doctor-patient relationship, and

BRINGING the medical profession into disrepute.

The disgraced doctor was a leading surgeon at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda for three decades until he resigned in 1995.

Since then dozens of boys have claimed Shine abused and molested them.

The committee only considered allegations made by nine boys but many more have complained to gardai.

The inquiry finished last July and Dr Shine was struck off by the High Court on November 24.
