The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons – one of around 1000 organisations protected from prosecution by Royal Charter

For South Wales Police to succeed in getting Maurice struck off the register of practising veterinary surgeons was hurt- and painful, not only for Maurice, but his parents, wife and children.

Can you imagine the ‘social disgrace’ resulting from having been an adored and admired vet in the local community?

Well, instead of moaning and complaining, Maurice fights in ‘flight forward mode’:

Extract of 2004 Statutory Instrument:

20.3 On receipt of an application to which this Rule applies, the application shall be listed for hearing within 3 months.

20.6 At the hearing of an application to which this Rule applies –

(a) The applicant shall be entitled to address the Committee, and to adduce evidence and make submissions, in support of the application;

(b) The Solicitor shall be entitled to address the Committee, and to adduce evidence and make submissions, in opposition to the application.

However, the real firewall was built by Royal Charters. As you will read here, the first one was given in 1067 by William the Conqueror to the Corporation of the City of London. (!!!)
