The tribunal of the Mental Health Commission dismissed the claim by the solicitor and made discriminatory remarks when attempting to represent the patient before.
The court accepted the patient and a lawyer, not a committee-held lawyer committee, was qualified as a counsel. And the lawyer denounced her detention as an illegal patient.
Ashimedua Okonkwo, who tried to represent a woman who was detained as a non-human in the hospital under the Mental Health Act, argued that she could not represent women at the hearing. The patient who opposed her detention did not want to be represented by another nurse, and she and her family quit the court hearing before concluding.
If she was absent, the court decided that the woman had to remain unconscious in the hospital for six months. As a result, her lawyers went to the High Court, demanding an investigation into the legality of detention that continued in accordance with Article 40 of the Constitution on the 40th.
During the previous parte application (only one shown), the Okonwo mission statement was filed with the court complaining about how she was treated in court.
When Mrs. Justin Seamus Noonan returned on Monday for the case, Feichin McDonagh SC for the woman said the question was not challenging. I have also agreed that an order to direct the release of women has been agreed, but a stay that will allow a discussion on the ongoing care of women to be held between them will apply.
In a statement read by Donal McGuinness SC on behalf of the judge, Mairead McKenna BL acknowledged that "the patient is entitled to have a separate solicitor who does not belong to the committee of committees maintained by the committee". The defendant said the patient was denied the opportunity and that current detention is considered illegal.
"We sincerely regret this issue," the statement said.
There was a media statement in the statement saying that some of the court's questions about Okonkwo Ms. Okonkwo were considered discriminatory.
"The question has nothing to do with ethnicity or gender, and the proposal for its effect is fiercely against all three members of the Tribunal and has the right to protect their names," the statement said.
The lawyer said that if a statement on this matter is needed, the court will be willing to submit it. Okonkwo, headquartered in Balbriggan, Co Dublin, declared that women want their women to represent women in court.
She had previously given birth to another lawyer on behalf of the committee on behalf of her, and Okonwo said she had informed the committee that she was representing the woman now. When she attended the court last week to review the case of women, O'Conn said that her former attorney also attended. Okonkwo argued that she was qualified to practice in Ireland, that she knew about mental health law and was asked by the court if she was not authorized to represent the woman in court.
She regarded her remarks as confusing and discriminatory because she was a woman and African-American.
Okonkwo says he has obtained a lawyer's license in Ireland in 2013, earned a master's degree in law from the TCD and will have a doctorate in law from the same university. She was asked to be quiet and could sit in the back of the room, but she insisted that she could not speak, write notes or record.
