Victims have slammed the “brass neck” of a former Tayside surgeon who has gone on a “jolly” to Copacabana Beach in Brazil while they lie bed-ridden.

Professor Muftah Salem Eljamel remaind on the International Photodynamic Association (IPA) board of directors despite being suspended from his post last year after a patient underwent surgery on the wrong spinal disc.

The surgeon is due to address guests at Saturday’s opening ceremony of the 15th IPA World Congress at the five-star Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio de Janeiro.

But it has now emerged that the IPA did not know about his suspension.
