Red News Readers,

What is disturbing about the Graeme Reeves case is that there were doctors and nurses who tried to raise the alarm about him, but they were bullied into silence by managers who either did not care or did not want to know. How many more Graeme Reeves's are out there? What is being done about them?

Bega doctor faces more sex assault charges


January 6, 2010 - 11:17AM

The trial of former Bega doctor Graeme Reeves onmore than 100 sexual assault and fraud charges has been put off because of new charges laid last month.

During a brief appearance at Sydney's Downing Centre District Local Court this morning, prosecutor Monica Knowles said the Director of Public Prosecutions was reviewing a further 24 new complaints, which could bring the total of new charges to more than 70.

Reeves, 59, is accused of assaulting and mutilating female patients between 1989 and 2004.

Ms Knowles did not say how many women the 24 new complaints related to.

In December police laid 52 new charges.

Mr Reeves was due to face trial on more than 100 charges in March, but the trial date has been vacated this morning.

No new date has yet been set, but the matter will be back in court on March 5.
