“They Want to Destroy Tim Noakes”

Destroy

The never-ending hearing against Professor Tim Noakes in South Africa is going to take more time. It’s now planned to resume in April 2017, with a final verdict to be issued at the end of that month.

There was, however, another bizarre twist to this witch trial over a low-carb tweet. As the council concluded its hearing, the Health Professions Council of South Africa issued a prepared statement saying Noakes had been found guilty of unprofessional conduct.

Only one little problem, the hearing was not even over.

After the press release of the “verdict” had gone viral, they issued a retraction and an apology. Adam Pike, an attorney for Noakes, reacted like this:

This is deliberate. It’s an intent to destroy the reputation of one of South Africa’s greatest scientists. It’s symptomatic of how the matter has been run. This is so irregular and so incorrect on so many levels. There’s a personal vendetta and I don’t know where it comes from.

We’ll have to wait until April of next year for the end (hopefully) of the trial.
