EYE, EYE! OPTICIAN’S QUICKIE IN SURGERY WITH A STRANGER!
AN optician who had sex in his eye exam room with a stranger he had only just met has been cleared of doing anything wrong.
Azzam Shweiki, 49, was pulling down the shutters of his east London practice when a woman walked past and ‘their eyes met’.
They flirted through the window and minutes later she was inside the practice and the two started having sex.
Shweiki was hauled before a disciplinary committee over the spontaneous incident – but was allowed to keep his job after a panel ruled he had done nothing wrong.
The General Optical Council, sitting in London, heard how the eye doctor was working late when the woman walked past.
Panel chair Anne Johnstone said: “He was closing down the shop when a lady walked past. Their eyes met.
“He said ‘hello’ and she smiled and walked past. She then stopped and went back to him.
“They flirted with each other and continued to flirt when they moved inside the practice. They went into the examination room of the practice and engaged in consensual sexual activity.”
Shweiki admitted a charge of failing to maintain professional boundaries.
But he was cleared of misconduct because the woman was not a patient, colleague or employee.
Ms Johnstone added: “The business was his own, so there could be no breach of trust with an employer in making use of the premises.”
