Lawyer Ahmednasir To Contest Supreme Court Ban At East African Court

Published

on

Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi says he will be moving to the East African Court of Justice to challenge the decision by the Supreme Court to ban him and his firm from appearing from it.

Ahmednasir on his X account further insisted that the Judiciary headed by Chief Justice Martha Koome is corrupt.

“I have instructed my lawyers to file a petition in the East African Court of Justice at Arusha to seek legal redress against KOOME’s judicial skulduggery and niggling shenanigans. I will not waste time in going to KOOME’s CORRUPT COURT!” he stated.

The ban signed by the Registrar of the Supreme Court accuses Ahmednasir of conducting a campaign on print, electronic and social media while scandalising the court.

Abdullahi has recieved support from colleagues in the legal profession including James Orengo who says the ban by the Supreme Court is arbitrary.

Law Society of Kenya President Eric Theuri described the ban ias ‘illegal, irregular and paints the Court as a purveyor of injustice.

Advocate’s lobby group now wants the Apex Court to retract Ahmednasir’s expulsion and offer an apology to the advocate.

The ban issued on Thursday and signed by the Registrar of the Supreme Court L. Wachira was issued by the full bench of the apex court.

The judges said the ban also applies to associates in his law firm.

“In view of the foregoing, it is the decision of this Court, that henceforth and from the date of this Communication, you shall have no audience before the Court, either by yourself, through an employee of your law firm, or any other person holding brief for you, or acting pursuant to your instructions. Much as this decision is bound to affect those who may have instructed you to represent them before the Court, it is untenable that you would seek justice in the very institution and before the very Judges, whose reputation and integrity you never tire of assaulting,” the Supreme Court Registrar wrote in the letter to the Senior Counsel.
