One of Britain’s top heart surgeons raped a woman in his office after telling her “you owe me” for helping her sick child, a court heard.
The alleged victim told how 53-year-old Mohamed Amrani was still in his scrubs as he forced his tongue in her mouth and kissed her neck and ears.
She told jurors how the consultant surgeon then stripped her naked and said “I’m going to f*** you,” then sexually assaulted her.
The alleged victim, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, is one of four women he is said to have attacked during a campaign of ‘sexual bullying’ at the hospital between 2001 and 2014.
When she begged him ‘please don’t do that’, Amrani turned her around and said he was going to have sex with her from behind, the Old Bailey heard.
He then sat her down on the sofa in his office at Harefield Hospital in Hillingdon, west London and forced her to perform a sex act, jurors were told.
She said she felt she was left ‘very, very shaken’ after the attack and felt she could not report the incident because of Amrani’s position at the hospital, where his wife Clare worked part-time.
Amrani was finally reported to police in 2015 – by which time he had allegedly patted the bottom of a fifth victim at the Cromwell private hospital in Kensington, west London, in June 2014.
Prosecutors claim he carried out the assaults over 13 years and believed his position as one of Britain’s leading surgeons meant his victims would never dare to complain.
The eminent specialist performed Britain’s first double heart valve replacement using keyhole surgery in 2007, and has carried out life-saving transplant operations.
He denies all the attacks and any sexual contact with the women, and claims they have invented the accusations against him.
Amrani, from Harrow, northwest London, denies one count of rape, one count of assault by penetration, six counts of indecent assault and three counts of sexual assault.
The trial continues, Daily Mail reports.
