Bangladesh Bar Council, the licensing and regulatory body for lawyers, has punished a lower court advocate for committing “misconduct” by posing as a barrister and Supreme Court lawyer, although he is not so.
The tribunal-1 of the bar council has removed Parvez Ahmed, who was enrolled as Dhaka court lawyer in December 1999, from the law profession permanently as the allegation brought against him of committing misconduct has been proved, a bar council press release said today.
Barrister M Sarwar Hossain, a SC lawyer, has lodged the complaint with the bar council saying that Parvez Ahmed is neither a barrister nor a lawyer of the SC.
But, he (Parvez) was attending the television talk shows falsely exposing himself a barrister and a SC lawyer and by dosing so he committed frauds with the people and misconduct, Barrister Sarwar said in his complaint, adding that Parvez has used visiting cards claiming him a barrister and SC lawyer.
After examining the relevant documents and statements of the complainant, the Bar Council Tribunal-1 on October 21 has found the allegation true and ordered for removing Parvez from the law profession permanently.
Earlier on October 7 this year, the same tribunal has suspended Parvez from the law profession for 10 years in another case, according to the press release.
