I refer to the above subject matter.
The Disciplinary Committee of the General Legal Council (the “Council’) at its meeting held on 6th July 2017, after a preliminary enquiry at which you were present, decided that you must be reprimanded for your conduct in this matter, to wit:
As a lawyer, you received an amount of Four Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC4,000.00) from the Complainant herein, with a promise to help him obtain visa to enable him continue his football career abroad irrespective of the fact that you are not a registered Player Agent. Albeit you were unsuccessful in securing him the visa, you failed to refund to him an outstanding balance of Three Thousand Five Hundred Ghana Cedis (GHC3,500.00) until your conduct was reported to the Council.
By this letter, you are hereby reprimanded for your unacceptable and highly unethical conduct. The Council will not approve of any such professional misconduct from you in the future.
Please note that this letter will be published on the Council’s website, after delivery to you.
HON. JUSTICE WILLIAM ATUGUBA
CHAIRPERSON, DISCIPLINARY COMMITTEE
GENERAL LEGAL COUNCIL
