Suspended solicitor convicted over immigration advice

first_imgA woman who continued to provide unregulated immigration advice despite being suspended has avoided jail.Flora Mendes, from Luton, pretended to be a regulated solicitor and practised under the firm name of Arch’s Law – despite the Solicitors Regulation Authority having suspended her in January 2013.Mendes was convicted in her absence at Luton Magistrates’ Court last week of four counts of providing unregulated immigration advice.The 37-year-old was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment for each offence, to run concurrently, suspended for two years. She is also subject to a curfew order to run seven days a week until 29 August and was ordered to pay £2,325 in compensation and £2,881 in prosecution costs.District Judge Lee-Smith said Mendes had ‘left a trail of destruction towards vulnerable people she left in her wake’.Speaking about the sentence, immigration services commissioner Suzanne McCarthy said: ‘Ms Mendes chose to operate outside the law. I am delighted with the outcome of this case.‘I hope it sends a clear message to other people considering providing immigration advice – either act within the law or you will find yourself in court.’According to SRA records, Mendes was subject to an SRA intervention in January 2013 because of suspected dishonesty.The suspension of her practising certificate was lifted in May 2013 on the condition that she could not run a firm again.The SRA then announced last October she would be called to a hearing before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal to face five allegations.last_img read more

Allegri questions Pep Guardiola’s tactics

first_img Upd. at 16:50 EFE “We have followed Guardiola for many years misunderstanding his game,” said Allegri. “Guardiola showed us the exception, it was not football for everyone. That historic Barcelona side was born with three great players who pressure high up and lock up rival defences in their areas. IN SPORT.ES CET “That way, the midfielders raise their position and attack the spaces and your defence can reach the centre of the field. But you have to have Iniesta, Xavi and Messi. We have interpreted something that only they could do as an idea suitable for everyone.” The Italian says Pep managed his great success with Barcelona between 2008-12 thanks “to three great players” in Xavi, Iniesta and Leo Messi. He told Courier della Sera that the play that team used cannot be applied to just any team.center_img Allegri cuestiona a Guardiola 06/12/2019 Coach Massimiliano Allegri, who is a free agent after leaving Juventus in May, questioned Man City boss Pep Guardiola’s ideas.
