M RAVI ORDERED TO STOP PRACTICING LAW UNTIL PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION, LAW SOCIETY

The Law Society on Tuesday announced that it has ordered M Ravi, a popular defense lawyer who has helmed several high profile cases against the state, to stop practicing with immediate effect.

The society cited grave concerns over M Ravi’s psychological health. The ban will remain until a psychiatrist examines Mr Ravi and declares him fit to continue practicing as a lawyer.

The society said it has received information which appears to show that Mr Ravi’s ability to practice has been impaired due to his mental condition. The 43 year-old Ravi was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2006.

Mr Ravi insisted yesterday that he was fit for practice. He said that he had seen his psychiatrist Dr M Winslow last month and hen on 2 February, and “there was no complaints about my fitness to practice”. Ravi said that he is in discussions with his psychiatrist over this matter.
