  1. Mr man it is simply inadvisable to ever represent yourself in a criminal trial. Yes it is true and completely stated in the law book that someone can represent his or herself in the court. Self representation in court is due to inherent cost of hiring a lawyer which is permissible according to the law book.

    If you choose to represent yourself in the court,it is advisable to hire a lawyer to help you at least part of the way. While you will be handling most of the task in your lawsuit,the lawyer you hired will act as a consultant, explaining to you what need to be done and offering advice on strategy and tactics. And of course this move is usually less costly than hiring a lawyer to take your case in full.

    But where this man has gotting it all wrong and has made his case an impersonation is simply because he has appeared in the court to represent himself for good 4 times! Now the question is,for what reason is he repeatedly appearing and representing himself in the court? Even though he is not representing anyone in the court,such a repeated appearance in the court with gown,wigs and other procurement document makes his case an impersonation which is punishable by law.

    According to his statement,he has had some clients already and that makes him look more of a criminal because he lacks the qualification,license and certificate to prove him as a legal practitioner or as a lawyer.

    those who assisted him in procuring the wig,gown and documents that has boosted this man’s confident in appearing in the court and even having clients since to 2013 should be traced,be caught and questioned and be charged with criminal offence if possible.

  2. Old man, it appears that you are so interested in this profession. Why didn’t you push yourself a little bit further by earning law degree if your interest is there?. You already had your A levels, you are not far from realizing your goal. If you cannot go on full time you can enrol for part-time degree. You are too old to be embarrassing by these young barristers.

  3. Has it been considered that there could be strong presence of delusion here? Doesn’t this guy appear like someone who really needs help? He honestly believes he has done nothing wrong. How about that for intention to commit a crime? Am sure impersonation is not a strict liability offense. Guess needs medical attention for starters!
