Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh found guilty of professional misconduct again
Former SNP MP and solicitor Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh has been found guilty of professional misconduct for a second time by the Scottish Solicitors’ Discipline Tribunal.
Ms Ahmed-Sheikh, 50, was found guilty of “recklessness by omission” during her tenure as the designated cashroom partner at Glasgow law firm Hamilton Burns, which is now defunct.
She admitted six other breaches of financial rules too but was cleared of any suggestion of dishonesty or a lack of integrity. In 2019 she was found guilty of professional misconduct and was fined £3,000.
The firm went into administration in 2017. Ms Ahmed-Sheikh was the SNP MP for Ochil between 2015 and 2017.
