Since the Fishrot matter came to the public attention a few weeks ago, the Law Society of Namibia (LSN) has been in regular consultation with other regulatory bodies and institutions to determine the extent of the allegations and the involvement of the members of the LSN. The LSN has now formally commenced investigations into: (i) the trust accounts of implicated legal practitioners; and (ii) the professional conduct of the legal practitioners involved. Formal action will be taken against all legal practitioners who acted contrary to the Legal Practitioners Act, 1995.
