A SELF-proclaimed healer will face a manslaughter charge in connection with the death of a woman at Cleeve House in Seend three years ago - but her son is unhappy that others he feels were involved in the ‘treatment ‘ are not to be brought to court.

Danielle Carr-Gomm, 71, died on October 20, 2016 after undergoing a paida lajin ‘slap therapy’ treatment course.

Matthew Carr-Gomm, a 46-year-old IT consultant from Surrey, said: “I am extremely outraged, completely dismayed and feel really let down by Wiltshire Police and the Crown Prosecution Service on account of the fact they have dropped any action against the promoter and another.”

He wants Salim Jodiyawalla, said to have charged participants £750 for a place on the week-long workshop, Swindon-based Joanna Hartl, a trustee of The Family Federation of World Peace and Unification – colloquially known as the Moonies - which owns Cleeve House, to face justice.

Mr Carr-Gomm said: “My personal feeling is this guy (Mr Jodiyawalla)was running it as a business and profiting out of it.

“He’s got away with it scot-free and it doesn’t sit right with me.

“There’s no responsibility. No accountability. I think it’s alarming that in this day and age in the UK that alternative therapies such as this is allowed to go completely unregulated.

“I think it’s cavalier. There is no protection to people swept away by alternative therapies.”

He said he planned to petition the government, asking for the law to be changed so people who operate groups promoting alternative therapies are “as accountable as a company director”.

Mr Carr-Gomm added: “Sure, I’m happy that this quack is being held to account, but quite frankly it’s little consolation when actually the people who should be answerable, standing trial and facing justice have just been let off.”

Soon after his mother's death, Mr Carr-Gomm said:

“She was very open to alternative therapies - she tried acupuncture and she changed her diet a lot, but largely reasonably harmless things. On reflection it turned out that it was a very dangerous practice.

She was persuaded by them that it would work, b

Only now have Wiltshire Police officers been authorised to charge a man, after the Crown Prosecution Service authorised a charge of gross negligence manslaughter against Hongchi Xiao, 56, whose registered address is in California.

A warrant for his arrest was issued at Salisbury Magistrates’ Court on October 4.

Mrs Carr-Gomm, 71, was found dead hours after taking part in one of his ‘slap therapy’ workshops at Cleeve House. The Type 1 diabetes sufferer of Lewes, East Sussex, had stopped taking insulin after undergoing previous workshops.

Workshop participants paid up to £750 to “have toxins removed from the body” through hard and repeated slapping.

Former Wall Street trader turned healer Mr Xiao was among two men and a woman arrested on suspicion of manslaughter. The other people arrested at the time of the incident have been released with no further action – a decision which has infuriated her son Matthew.

Police say they are working with the appropriate authorities to ensure Xiao stands trial.
