The five years of delays in setting a court date for Dr Jereth Kok, the GP accused of calling for genocide of racial and religious groups, has effectively ended his medical career, his lawyer says.

Dr Kok has been suspended under emergency powers since 2019 after the Medical Board of Australia held an emergency hearing based on anonymous complaints about a series of social posts he made.
