Lutfur Rahman struck off – anyone give a corrupt ex-solicitor a job?

Ex-mayor of Tower Hamlets Lutfur Rahman’s name was struck from the solicitors roll today as all charges brought by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) were found proved.

Rahman has also been ordered to pay the £86,000 costs of the case.

The SRA decision found that Rahman failed to uphold the rule of law and the administration of justice, failing to act with integrity and failing to behave in a way that maintains the trust the public places in him and in the provision of legal services.

Lutfur’s next stop?

Lutfur Rahman was found guilty of corruption in a civil court (the electoral petition), kicked out of the town hall and banned from standing for office. 

Rahman, a solicitor for over 20 years, has today been found to have brought the legal profession into disrepute and can no longer practise.

Looking on the bright side at least he and his Tower Hamlets First administration’s activities are not the subject of a major criminal investigation by the Metropolitan Polic… oh they are!

What goes around comes around.

For some odd reason it takes a very long time for justice to be done in Tower Hamlets but todays SRA ruling shows that it does happen. Eventually.

  1. Will Rahman’s traditional supporters be as vocal now as they have been in the past? Will we now hear from Ken Livingstone, Lee Jasper, the Stop The War crowd, The Guardian’s Dave Hill and the other and still practicing solicitor now under investigation Peter Herbert?

    1. Good point Dave. I think we all know the answer to your question is no. Although to be honest I doubt if anyone in the borough wants to hear any more drivel from them.
