CONTROVERSIAL lawyer Ahmed Nassir Abdulahi is now in trouble after it emerged that his purported pupilage certificate was forged in 1992.
The former Law Society of Kenya Chair now risks losing his law degree and heâ€™ll automatically be struck off the roll of Advocates. According to a new petition filed at the High Court in Nairobi by his fellow lawyers, the petition wants the Court to declare the pupilage Certificate of Ahmed Nassir dated 28th November 1992 as null and void having been issued by an unqualified person who didn’t have a practicing certificate by then.
According to the petition the controversial lawyer is accused of lying that he completed his pupilage under the guidance of the late Mr. Peter Simani while in fact Mr. Simani did not have a practicing certificate in the year 1992-1993 a position which was also confirmed by the LSK, Judiciary Registrar and also by the late Simani himself in a sworn affidavit.
The lawyers now want the Court to nullify the certificate of pupilage for Mr Ahmed Nassir signed by Mr. Simani dated 26th November 1992. The petitioners also want Mr. Ahmed Nassir to face 8 criminal charges in the case which will effectively kick him out of the Courts and sideline him to be a spectator in the Corridors of Judiciary where he used to reign and he was nicknamed â€œGrand Mullahâ€ by judges who used to fear him because of the powers that he possessed at the Judicial service Commission.
Mr. Ahmed Nassir is likely to face charges of forgery, making false documents, forgery of Judicial documents, uttering false documents, procuring execution of documents by false pretences, making documents without authority, lending certificate for personation and personation of a person named in a certificate.
