Councillor ‘Pretended To Be A Barrister’

Monday, 8th September 2014 at 11:34am

The Guildford Dragon reports that a case against councillor Monika Juneja has been referred to Guildford Crown Court.

The councillor is facing seven charges, including forgery, fraud by false representation, obtaining monetary advantage by deception and wilfully pretending to be a barrister.

The prosecution team allege that when applying for a Bar Vocational Course, Ms Juneja informed Grey’s Inn that she had obtained a 2.1 degree when she had only obtained a 3rd – such a grade would be insufficient to qualify for a place on the course.

It is alleged that she had secured employment using a CV which falsely stated she had got a ‘competent’ marking on her Bar Vocational Course.
