CHINESE MEDICINE PRACTITIONERS (DISCIPLINE) REGULATION
L.N. 253 of 2000
Consolidation of charges and amendment of notice of inquiry
(1) Where the Board secretary receives any further complaint or information that he thinks is similar in nature to a complaint or information before the Board against the same defendant, he shall refer it to the Committee as soon as practicable.
(2) Upon the recommendation of the Committee to hold an inquiry into any further complaint or information against the same defendant, the Board may direct that-
(a) the further complaint or information or any part thereof be inquired into at the same inquiry against the defendant, and where the Board makes that direction, evidence relating to the further complaint or information may be introduced at the inquiry; and
(b) the notice of inquiry be amended accordingly and served on the defendant within such period of time as may be specified in the direction.
(3) Where before the opening of the inquiry and in the course of the inquiry, it appears to the Board chairman that a notice of inquiry is defective, the Board chairman may give such directions for its amendment as he thinks necessary to remedy the defect unless, having regard to the merits of the case, he thinks that to make the required amendment will be unjust to the defendant.
(4) The Board secretary shall, as soon as it is practicable after an amendment of a notice of inquiry has been made under subsection (3), give notice of the amendment to the defendant and to the complainant.
