Former Fiji Football Association president and disbarred lawyer Dr Muhammad Shamsud-Dean Sahu Khan’s appeal was today dismissed by the Fiji Court of Appeal in Suva.
Dr Sahu Khan had appealed his sentence and conviction of professional misconduct.
He appeared before Justice Eric Basnayake, Justice Susantha Lechamwasam and Justice Susantha Balapatabendi.
The court heard that after considering all submissions made they would uphold the High Court’s decision and Dr Sahu Khan has been ordered to pay $5000 to the Registrar’s office.
The former Ba lawyer was disbarred from practicing law after he was found guilty of professional misconduct by the Independent Legal Service Commission.
He failed to comply with a Deed of Indemnity and Guarantee which he executed with his client Sashi Kiran in 2006.
