Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi.

BY SAM ALFAN.

The high court in Nairobi has shorn of a request to have SC Ahmednasir Abdullahi’s papers investigated.

This is following allegations that he may not have attained prerequisite qualifications to become a lawyer.

Mr Brayn Yongo a city businessman had asked the court to allow him get Ahmednasir academic details so he could prove that he is not a qualified lawyer.

The Director of Criminal Investigation then applied for an order to have SC Ahmednasir’s papers investigated.

Senior Principal Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot, dismissed the application saying that it was an abuse of the court process.

The order to compel the Chief Registrar of the High Court to produce and give access to the books and files relating to senior counsel Ahmednasir can’t be issued, he said by doing so, we will pave way for people to investigate private lives of individuals which is unlawful.

The application by the DCIO arose from a complaint by Brayn Yongo and city lawyer Michael Osundwa, that Ahmednasir never attended pupilage, a critical component in admitting one to the rolls of an advocate of the High Court.

The two in a letter dated October 21 2015 alleged that Ahmednasir forged the signature belonging to the late advocate Peter Simani to secured a certificate of  pupilage.

Through his lawyer Isaa Mansur, SC Ahmednasir said that the application was brought in malice having been admitted to the bar in 1983.
