Supreme Court Disqualifies Lawyer Found Guilty of Forging Deed

In a significant legal decision, the Supreme Court has rendered a verdict disqualifying a lawyer who was found guilty of violating the Notaries Ordinance through the act of forging a deed.

The ruling was pronounced by a panel of judges from the Supreme Court, including Chief Justice Jayantha Jayasuriya, Justice S. Thurairaja, and Mahinda Samayawardena.

This judgment follows a hearing initiated by the Supreme Court in response to a complaint lodged by the Central Province High Court registrar regarding the lawyer’s actions.

The charges brought against the lawyer pertained to the creation of a fraudulent deed on February 5, 1999, which was considered an offense under the Notaries Ordinance.

After thorough proceedings, the Supreme Court bench reached a conclusive decision. Due to the substantial evidence presented, which proved the accusations against the lawyer beyond a reasonable doubt, the Court ordered the removal of the accused lawyer’s name from the lawyers directory.

This verdict underscores the commitment of the judiciary to uphold the principles of legality and integrity within the legal profession, reaffirming the importance of ethical conduct in the legal system.
