Chamber of Advocates disappointed with attacks on lawyers

The Chamber of Advocates expressed its disappointment for the attacks being levelled on lawyers despite that they are doing their duties.

In a statement, the Chamber recalled that it is the fundamental right of every individual to be assisted by a lawyer of his/her choice.

It stated that the role of the lawyer is to participate in the full process for justice to prevail and should not be criticised according to the crime that his client is charged with.

“When the attack is made by another member of the same profession, this renders the fact a more grievous one”, the Chamber of Advocates added, whose President is Dr Louis de Gabriele (photo).
