|GBA remains mum on Ramjattan’s, Hughes’s legal improprieties|
|Sunday, 19 August 2012 19:55|
THE Guyana Bar Association GBA) has still not issued a statement or comment on the issue of the accusations made against Leader of the Alliance For Change (AFC) and Attorney at law Khemraj Ramjattan, and now Chairman of the Party and Attorney at law Nigel Hughes.
The two prominent lawyers have been accused of committing legal improprieties, acts which are contrary to their prominence in the political arena.
Veronica Da Silva and MIchael Taharally have accused Ramjattan of giving consent to the sale of Da Silva’s property located at 240 & 241 Camp Street, Georgetown in 2006, without their permission. Da Silva stated that she had agreed to pay Ramjattan $1M but he instead took $3M.
Ramjattan additionally sold the property evaluated at $90M for $55M.
Da Silva and Taharally have since lodged a formal complaint at the Registrar of the Supreme Court under the Legal Practioner’s Act against Ramjattan.
The couple is seeking to have their monies and the property returned and for Ramjattan to be removed from the Bar for betraying the principles of the legal profession.
On the issue of Nigel Hughes, the Bar Association has again not yet made any kind of statement. Hughes was ordered by the Court to pay taxes due to the Guyana Revenue Authority, totaling in excess of $12M.
It must be noted that both men, whilst being prominent lawyers, are also prominent political figures as leaders of the AFC.
