Not content with passing off ‘he was discussing insurance in my office’ as an alibi for an alleged offence of abduction and extortion by a client in 2005, Shahid Pervez, a Scottish ex-conveyancer now convicted of perverting the course of justice, also fell foul of the Scottish Solicitors Discipline Tribunal in the same year for ‘accounting malpractice and not registering title deeds timeously’. He was struck off the roll for ten years. It was probably lucky for the alleged offender that he wasn’t actually arranging insurance.
And, in passing, it also appears we have a new offence of demanding money with masturbatory aids. Tell me, is that a gun in your pocket or are you just pleased?
