The Health Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal has struck off a nurse who was convicted in the High Court of money laundering.  The nurse made payments on behalf of her husband who was serving a jail term for drug offending.  She transferred money into third party accounts including a corrupt prison guard.

The Tribunal was satisfied that it was necessary to cancel her nurse’s registration because the charge reflected adversely on the nurse’s fitness to practice and she was a key participant in her husband’s continued, significant and lengthy criminal activities.
