Clients accuse AFC's Khemraj Ramjattan of legal impropriety.

A Georgetown couple has accused Attorney- at- law and lead parliamentarian for the Alliance For Change(AFC), Khemraj Ramjattan of legal impropriety.

The couple said that they paid the AFC leader millions of dollars to provide legal representation during a court dispute concerning a Camp Street property only for the lawyer to conspire with the other party and have the building sold for less than its actual value.

Michael Taharally and Veronica Da Silva told members of the media that Ramjattan acted against their interest by conspiring with Sheik Naseer to sell the disputed property for far less than its valuated price. The property was valued at $89M while Ramjattan signed off on a consent order on the couple's behalf and selling it for $55M.

In 2009 similar allegations were leveled against Ramjattan by one Prakash Persaud who claimed he had accepted payment to represent him in court but failed to do so. Prakash said Ramjattan's non-attendance at court caused him to lose the case.
