Dr Peter Alexakis involved in legal battle over $30 million will of deceased patient

·

Dr Peter Alexakis has been accused of “undue influence” and “fraud” after his Western Sydney property tycoon patient left him 90 per cent of his more than $30 million will, according to court documents obtained by The Daily Telegraph.

Raymond John McClure, who never married and had no children, made six wills between 1986 and his death at 84 in November 2017.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Mr McClure’s estate included $30 million in share holdings, $1 million held in the US, a historic Strathfield house and the mystery contents of a Swiss bank account.

According to documents filed at the Supreme Court, the second, third and fourth wills in various forms, left his house and the “residue” of his wealth to his 40-year business partner, Frank Camilleri, who maintained Mr McClure’s investment properties, long time friend Hildegard Schwanke, and the Salvation Army.

In the last years of his life, Mr McClure received treatment from Strathfield GP Dr Peter Alexakis.

Less than six months before he died in 2017, Mr McClure wrote two new wills that left the bulk of his estate to Dr Alexakis, according to court ­documents obtained by The Daily Telegraph.

In response, Mr Camilleri, Ms Schwanke and the Salvation Army have launched legal action in the NSW Supreme Court challenging the validity of the two 2017 wills.

The legal battle comes as the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency has placed several conditions on Mr Alexakis’ operating licence, including banning him from conducting home or nursing home visits.

When approached on Saturday by The Daily Telegraph, Dr Alexakis said there was a lot he could say but was unable to because of the court case.
