KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah (pic) has failed in his appeal to set aside a decision by the Advocates and Solicitors Disciplinary Board to fine him for misconduct.
High Court (Appellate and Special Powers) judge Justice Zaleha Yusof dismissed the appeal Friday, holding that the court should not interfere with the decision of the board.
The board had fined Muhammad Shafee RM5,000 following a complaint by then Bar Council president Ragunath Kesavan on Sept 23, 2010 that he had publicised himself and his firm.
He was accused of breaching Section 94(3) of the Legal Profession Act 1976.
The complaint was based on an interview given by Muhammad Shafee in two articles that appeared in The Star on Sept 27, 2009.
The findings of the disciplinary committee were that Muhammad Shafee had publicised himself and his firm of solicitors in a manner that infringed the Legal Profession Publicity Rules 2001.
