Shaista Shameem to open own law firm

The former chair of the Fiji Human Rights Commission, Shaista Shameem, is opening her own private practice, according to sources.

Coupfourpointfive has been told Shameem has written to the Fiji Law Society, seeking approval to set up her own law firm.

It's being said that Shameem and her sister, former High Court judge Nazhat Shameem, are miffed with Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, and don't want to join the new legal order.

It's not clear whether Nazhat Shameem, who was earlier rumoured to take up the position of chief justice, will join her sister's practice.

I don't for one second buy that The Shyster and her sibling are completely HANDS-OFF from the military regime. Their blood-tainted paw prints are still fresh.

If she opens a practice good on her. Let's see if the Law Society allows her tho'.

Unfortunately for both their ILLEGAL reputations precede them and the best (in terms of business) they might get are traffic and DUI defence cases -- if at ALL.

With her qualifications, can she practice law? I thought she was a sociologist.

And what speciality will they offer through that firm? Protection of human rights or just facilitating the set up in Fiji of muslim foreign investors with money obtained by illegal/terrorist means?

Pooey @ the shysters!

I don't think anyone will be able to sit still for 2mins in the shyster's office with all that nauseating toxic chemical smell emitting from her moppy hair!
