Fraudster who cost profession millions is banned

first_imgA law firm director motivated by greed to carry out fraudulent conveyancing deals has been struck off the register of foreign lawyers.Kamran Adil, born in 1984, had been granted foreign lawyer status in England and Wales only in January 2012, but within 11 months his firm was intervened into and his status was suspended.When SRA investigators went to look round the firm, London-based Tavistock Law Limited, they found the name plaque removed and were denied access to the premises.But a case against Adil was already being established, with reports from other solicitors and opposing parties about apparent irregularities in numerous conveyancing transactions in which his firm was involved.The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal heard Adil would move a decimal point so as to pay 10% of the amount actually due to redeem mortgages.In conveyancing transactions, the firm received monies intended for a specific purpose but which were transferred out of the client account to apparently unrelated third parties.The tribunal heard the firm was a ‘vehicle for widespread mortgage fraud’, the cost of which ultimately fell on the profession as a whole through the compensation fund.Several repayments came to six-figure sums, with the highest compensation payment being more than £1m.The tribunal found Adil had played a ‘key role in the exemplified transactions and they were clearly fraudulent’. His conduct was found to be ‘deliberate, calculated and repeated’.‘The operation of moving the decimal point so as to pay 10% of the amount actually due to redeem the mortgages was evidence of pre-meditation; the tribunal did not accept that this happened mistakenly.’Adil did not appear before the one-day hearing last month, despite the SRA attempting to write to him at an address in Pakistan, contacting the Punjab Bar Council and even placing an advertisement in a Rawalpindi newspaper.He was struck off the register of foreign lawyers and ordered to pay £34,000 costs.A second director of the firm, Paul Iwezulu, born in 1939 and admitted in 2008, was found by the tribunal to have failed to ensure staff were adequately supervised and to ensure compliance with accounts rules.But the tribunal heard that Iwezulu, who had been in practice for more than 40 years, seven of which were in the UK, was as much the victim as were the parties subject to fraudulent transactions.He had been recruited under false circumstances and had little opportunity to prevent what was happening.He was reprimanded and ordered to pay £1,000 costs.last_img read more

Browns hope to start RGIII again this season

first_imgIt looks like the Cleveland Browns might be able to use their season starting quarterback before the dreadful 2016 campaign is over.NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport noted on NFL GameDay Morning Sunday that unless rookie quarterback Cody Kessler returns from a concussion and plays like he has been, the team will try and start Robert Griffin III at least one more time.Griffin (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve after a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and was originally set to return the very next week but the injury was worse that the team thought. He practiced with the Browns before Thanksgiving and could be in line to see playing time sooner rather than later.The Browns (0-11) are starting veteran Josh McCown against the New York Giants (7-3) today while Kessler recovers from his second concussion. Last week, Browns coach Hue Jackson said he would consider shutting Kessler down if his symptoms didn’t improve, noting that he was more concerned for Kessler’s future than him starting.The Browns have a large roster bonus due to Griffin on the third day of the 2017 league year. It would be nice to know before that if there is any chance he could be the player who won the NFL’s rookie of the year award just four years ago.

Namun saat menunggu itu, pria 25 tahun tersebut mulai merasa tidak nyaman dan mendorong pegangan pintu terdekatnya yang ternyata adalah pintu keluar darurat. Dia panik ketika pintu tiba-tiba terjatuh ke dalam dan slide darurat terkembang otomatis keluar. “Karena begitu pengap dan panas di pesawat, saya hanya mendorong pegangan jendela di sebelah saya. Tiba-tiba pintu itu roboh dan saya panik,” ujar Chen.Sayangnya pihak maskapai dan keamanan tidak yakin dengan penjelasan Chen. Maskapai penerbangan yang tidak disebutkan namanya tersebut mengatakan, kurangnya pengetahuan pria tersebut tidak dapat dimaafkan. Sebab, demonstrasi terkait instruksi keselamatan dan panduan manual darurat diberikan kepada penumpang dalam penerbangan.Maskapai tersebut menambahkan, pintu darurat tidak akan terbuka tanpa menggunakan kekuatan untuk membukanya. Pihak maskapai menjelaskan, secara khusus semua penumpang yang duduk di pintu keluar darurat dibuat sadar akan tindakan pencegahan dan tanggung jawab ketika duduk dibaris tersebut.Baca juga: Penasaran, Apa Sih Fungsi Penanda Pada Pintu Darurat di Kabin Pesawat?Diketahui atas insiden ini Chen ditahan pihak kepolisian setempat selama 15 hari dengan tuduhan pemindahan fasilitas penerbangan tanpa izin.

Penumpang yang ditemukan merokok atau terlibat perkelahian di bandara maupun pesawat akan dilarang terbang ke seluruh negeri selama satu tahun.Rasa gerah saat di dalam kabin memang kerap dirasakan, terutama pada penerbangan berbiaya murah.
