My peers dropped me, says lawyer Nthai

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

SETH NTHAI, SC, has lashed out at the Gen­eral Coun­cil of the Bar, the Jo­han­nes­burg Bar Coun­cil and the Pre­to­ria Bar Coun­cil for al­legedly break­ing agree­ments with him.

On Thurs­day sev­eral news­pa­pers re­ported that Nthai had been sus­pended pend­ing a probe by the State At­tor­ney into his con­duct and fees af­ter al­le­ga­tions that he grossly over­charged the State for cases he had done on its be­half.

Nthai’s spokesman, Abbey Makoe, com­plained that Nthai’s com­ments sub­mit­ted for gen­eral release had been ig­nored.

As a re­sult, the state­ment was bi­ased against him. He had de­cided not to prac­tise un­til the in­ves­ti­ga­tion was com­plete, in keep­ing with the ethics gov­ern­ing ad­vo­cates. – Staff Re­porter
