Georgetown, Guyana; – Anil Nandalall, the former Attorney General who is also currently acting as the lawyer for a number of former government officials who were arrested by the Special Organize Crime Unit (SOCU) has now found himself in the same debacle as his clients and political colleagues.

According to reports, Nandalall was arrested today by ranks of the Special Organize Crime Unit (SOCU) after a state-sponsored forensic audit had suggested that the well-known attorney was criminally culpable for the disappearance of several law volumes.

Nandalall who had also served as Guyana’s Minister of Legal Affairs in the previous administration had repeatedly faced accusations from the current administration, who has considered the law volumes that are currently in Nandalall’s possession, as stolen state property.

That position was continuously upheld by the state, and which saw incumbent Attorney General Basil Williams SC, pressing Nandalall to return the volumes since they were purchased with state funds for the AG’s office and are still considered State property.
