The background is Eastern and Central European countries trying to unload Roma (Gypsies) on Western European and Western hemisphere countries.
Three Toronto lawyers who were found guilty of professional misconduct in handling Roma refugees’ asylum claims, are facing separate class-action lawsuits from their former clients.
The proposed class-action members would comprise refugee claimants from Hungary who sought asylum in Canada from Jan. 1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2013, were represented by Viktor Hohots, Joseph Farkas or Erzsebet Jaszi, and had their claims rejected due to the lawyers’ alleged negligence.
“We have alleged that these lawyers accepted legal aid retainers but abdicated their professional responsibilities, engaged in professional misconduct and negligently represented their clients,” said litigation lawyer Sean Brown, who represents the plaintiffs.
