Fake lawyer busted after practising for one year

The Weija Police last Friday arrested one Timothy Yawson for posing as a lawyer.

Yawson, 42, was defending his client in a civil case at the Weija Circuit Court when he got arrested.

According to the police, the suspect, who has been practising the learned profession since 2016, will be put before court on Tuesday, July 11.

Yawson, who is alleged to have worked for a couple of law firms in the capital, is currently languishing in the Weija police cell pending prosecution.

The suspect failed to produce his law certificate and could not also recall the year he was called to the Bar during interrogation.
