PRISCILLA CHIPULU, Lusaka
THE Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has restored a legal practising licence for Lusaka lawyer Nicholas Chanda.
In March this year, LAZ suspended Mr Chanda from practising law in the country and instructed him not to appear in any court of law or tribunal.
The association also stopped Mr Chanda from filing court processes of any nature.
However, according to a notice signed by LAZ legal practitioners committee secretary Silas Mambwe dated June 30, 2017 and copied to the Chief Justice, her deputy, Supreme and High Court judges, the Attorney General and the Director of Public Prosecutions, among others, the association has rescinded its decision.
The association states that in its ruling on June 30 this year, the disciplinary committee decided to restore Mr Chanda’s practising certificate with immediate effect.
“By copy of this, the said legal practitioner may now appear in any court of law or tribunal and court process,” the notice reads in part.
