Looks like Didier Raoult, the french medic who pushed hydroxychloroquine as a cure for CoViD, is about to be struck off (at last).

From that link
The disciplinary chamber, chaired by a magistrate, can decide on sanctions against the doctor ranging from a simple warning to a temporary suspension
so it looks as if he won't be "struck off". But
Raoult must leave his job at the end of June at the latest due to retirement rules.
I don't know if the retirement is only from that job or from all medical practice.

The (mostly) French outlet Mediapart reports that they have interviewed multiple people ar Raoult's hospital, who have described (a) a culture of fear, (b) precise details of how Raoult and his inner circle faked the results of the first HCQ trial, and (c) how videos of Raoult pontificating run on a loop on screens inside the hospital. Details here in two posts (use Deepl.com to translate, it's great).

Hydroxychloroquine was prescribed in hospitalised patients with Covid-19 despite of the low-level evidence.


Subsequently, HCQ use was associated with an 11% increase in the mortality rate in a meta-analysis of randomized trials.


The number of hydroxychloroquine related deaths in hospitalised patients is estimated at 16,990 in six countries.


These findings illustrate the hazard of drug repurposing with low-level evidence for the management of future pandemics.
