Immigration fail lets Child Sex Fugitive American Doctor stay in Australia

It’s sickening - he's charged with grooming a young girl online and was caught by police when turning up at her home for sex. But scarily, Dr Robert Taylor had been working as a doctor in Australia – still dodging criminal charges with 7 year jail term.

There’s still a warrant for his arrest. He fled the USA whilst on bail, changed his name and secured medical roles using forged documents.

This is all reported in The Guardian in 2014 and the medical board know about his deception and have finally struck him off after 2 years of my  chasing them - but he's yet to be deported or face punishment for his crimes in the US or Australia. 

I'm a doctor who once worked in the same practice with him, and it makes me so angry.

There's serious loopholes in the medical regulation system allowing a man facing these charges to work as a doctor. This cunning man manipulated every loophole - moving interstate three times to find work after being found out and suspended. Even now, he is still living in our country and could be allowed to work as a doctor again in less than two years.

Please sign my petition calling for the Federal Government to urgently close loopholes allowing doctor such as this on serious criminal charges to be in Australia & deport him to face justice.

We need a single national  agency handling doctors working in Australia, not the 12 ineffective agencies currently failing at this task.
