Corrupt lawyers deregistered

HARARE – The Law Society of Zimbabwe has promised to play its part in helping the country rid itself of corruption especially in the justice delivery system.

\n


\nThis comes as the organisation has deregistered or suspended a number of lawyers who were found on the wrong side of the law.

\n

Law Society of Zimbabwe President, Commissioner Lloyd Mhishi said his organisation is investigating a number of lawyers in connection with corruption.

\n

Other lawyers fingered out in corruption are already at the tribunal awaiting determination of their fate.

\n

A year ago, some lawyers were sucked in the High Court fake order scam that rocked the justice delivery sector.

The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) Chairperson, Justice Rita Makarau said her organisation is working on strategies to curb corruption and improve effectiveness in the justice delivery system.
