A Co Armagh medical practice has refused to comment on sexual assault charges being brought against one of its former GPs.

Dr Tony Chee, 45, worked at Richhill Health Centre until 2011 when the practice severed its ties with the doctor. It has now emerged that Dr Chee has been charged with sexual assault following a number of complaints dating from 2009 to the time he left Richhill. A member of staff said yesterday the practice would not be commenting. Police say inquiries are ongoing and that anyone with information about “incidents at a health centre in Richhill” should contact detectives in Newry.

The man will appear before Armagh Magistrates’ Court on September 2.
