Kevin Metzger has won a judicial review application in Sierra Leone in which the General Legal Council (the body responsible for admitting and supervising  legal practitioners in Sierra Leone). Justice Showers, a Supreme Court Judge, sitting in the High Court, ruled that the General Legal Council had abused its power in considering the application in question, carrying our several procedural irregularities which could not be overlooked by the court. An order for certiorari was granted, quashing the decision not to admit the applicant. Costs were awarded in the Applicant’s favour.
