Scerif initially denied wrongdoing but eventually admitted she knew what she was doing was wrong and that she was not entitled to use the pass.
She said when she was stopped by the TfL ticket inspector she 'panicked' and tried to do what she could to minimise the seriousness of her actions.
She said she lied as she was 'ashamed and fearful of the consequences.'
She has since completed an ethics course and said she 'genuinely apologised to her family, the TfL ticket inspector, the TfL organisation, her profession, her colleagues and the public.'Her profession? Yes. Amazingly, it's Junior Doctor.
In giving Scerif the all clear to return to work, tribunal chairman Jayne Wheat said: 'Dr Scerif maintained her denials for a significant period of time until the suspension imposed by the 2019 Tribunal.
'But during this period she has undertaken considerable learning activity and her reflections were thorough and genuine. She provided genuine and honest responses regarding her acceptance of her dishonest conduct and provided convincing evidence of the insight that she has developed into her failings.
'The Tribunal was impressed that, despite the challenges presented by the Covid19 pandemic, Dr Scerif had continued with her online training, and secured a mentor that she has continued to liaise with. There is a minimal risk of repetition.'We're supposed to be impressed that she managed to complete an online course while working at home? Seriously?
