The General Medical Council's professional conduct committee described Dr Nicholas Grobler as a man "who cannot be trusted".
Grobler, of Gobowen, Oswestry, Shropshire, was appearing before a disciplinary hearing of the committee after admitting six charges of theft and deception in May last year.
While working as a GP in west London, he had claimed links to the Saudi royal family to dishonestly obtain a bank overdraft and bought a pounds 44,000 Rolls-Royce on hire purchase after pretending to own a house where he was renting a room. Grobler, 63, was jailed for three years and six months at Knightsbridge Crown Court. He served 21 months, including time before the trial, and is now in Saudi Arabia.Reuse content
