Re: Scumbag 'human rights lawyer' to be struck off

Good news but I wonder if the Shadow Attorney General might wish to reflect on her copious words of praise for Mr Shiner and his associates.

Quote:
In 2007 Shami and Shiner worked together on cases of Iraqi abuse allegations, telling the media that abuse by British troops was not a case of a “few bad apples” but “systemic”.

In 2008 Shami lavished praise on Shiner:

“His relentless work on behalf of the families of British soldiers and Iraqi civilians demonstrates the even-handedness of human rights.”

In 2011, at the conclusion of the Baha Mousa inquiry, Shami said that Shiner and his team of lawyers had

“brought honour to their profession”
Shami’s support for Shiner continued well after the allegations against him came to light. In 2015 Shami suggested Shiner was the victim of a witch hunt by the government:

“I know the dangers of governments threatening human rights lawyers for their work. It happens in dark parts of the world and is not good for the rule of law.”

Somehow I doubt it...

Quote:
The disgraced lawyer who led the “witch hunt” against Iraq war veterans that cost the British taxpayer 100 million has declared himself bankrupt, meaning he could now avoid paying his debts.

Phil Shiner, who was struck off as a solicitor for dishonesty and is now facing a criminal investigation, sold his home to his two daughters just a few weeks before applying for bankruptcy.

Shiner, 60, was made insolvent on Tuesday just 48 hours after filling in an online form with the Government’s Insolvency Service.

Quelle surprise...

They can take the home back to pay the creditors I think. You can't give everything away and declare bankruptcy IIRC.

Yes, if you tried that before moving into care the Council would nab you.

He didn't give everything away, he sold the house and presumably has been able to account for the funds realised. I have a feeling Shiner will have taken legal advice before doing this and concluded it was worthwhile. Given his track record, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if he gets away with it and that'll be more proof that the law is indeed an ass.

I wonder if the Shadow Attorney General is still as impressed with this guy as she was not all that long ago.

A (presumed) below market value sale is tantamount to giving away at least a proportion. He shouldn't be allowed to squirm out of anything but as you say he will have checked.

Maybe but if he was such a good lawyer he wouldn't be in this situation

One of the biggest complaints about this case is that the soldier concerned is being used as a political scapegoat, might be classier not to go down this road to imho

Nope. I'm fine just where I am. Pointing out the nasty people so that everyone knows who they are.

Fine, I do question who you're pointing her out to though, I mean it's hardly a secret how out of her depth she is or that her moral indignation is greater than the sum of her talent, in fact for me the only mystery with shami chakrabarti is that how someone with a foot seemingly perpetually wedged in her mouth hasn't choked to death yet.
