M Ravi serves letters of complaint on Law Society
Posted by temasektimes on July 30, 2012
One letter of complaint was directed at the Society’s President, Wong Meng Meng, and the other was served on member Wong Siew Hong.
Speaking to the media at his office on Friday, Ravi attacked the two lawyers for behaving in a manner which does “not befit the conduct” of professionals.
Two weeks ago, Wong Siew Hong made a surprise appearance in High Court with a letter from Ravi’s psychiatrist Calvin Fones claiming that he was medically unfit to practice and represent Vellama Marie Muthu. Vellama is Ravi’s client in a high-profile case seeking to clarify the discretion of the prime minister in calling for a by-election.
Justice Pillai dismissed Wong’s concerns immediately and continue the hearing which made the Law Society a laughing stock in the eyes of the public.
Speaking at a press conference called at his corporate law office on Battery Road on Friday, Ravi claimed that the two lawyers had behaved in a manner.
Ravi added that his lawyer Louis Joseph has also been instructed to serve letter of complaints to every member sitting on the Society’s council and would be requesting that they be expelled.
There is no immediate response from the Law Society.
