Bulletin: Henry Keogh: Australia: Part Five: Question of the day: (Also worth asking in respect of the Canadian forensic "expert" Charles Smith); How could Colin Manock - a medical doctor who did not have the expert qualifications to certify the cause of death - have appeared in 400 criminal cases - and yet nobody challenged his expert status? Legal reform activist Bob Moles gives his answer during an informative interview on the Ian Henschke Drive Program. ABC Radio 891;

"Ian: OK and one last quick one here and why didn’t defence counsel challenge Manock’s
expert status at a trial, why didn’t someone do that?

Bob: Now, isn’t that the big question, he has appeared in 400 criminal cases, and nobody
actually thought to focus in and ask whether he was properly qualified,

Ian: Well it’s a bit rude isn’t it, it’s like someone turning up at a court as an archbishop or
something, and people asking about your qualifications as an archbishop, you just accept it
don’t you,

Bob: In the Keogh trial, the prosecutor said here’s Dr Manock, he’s done 10,000 autopsies,
he’s obviously a man that you can rely upon.

Ian: Well as they say practice doesn’t make perfect practice just makes permanent.

Bob: Well as Rohan Wenn said on channel seven, just because you do a job frequently
doesn’t mean you do it right,

Ian: Well that was my old swimming coach, he said, practice makes permanent it doesn’t
make perfect if you do the wrong thing, you will do the wrong thing over and over again if
you do it the wrong way. Thank you very much, that’s been very insightful, Dr Bob Moles."
