(ANSA) – NAPLES, FEB 3 – A judge at a minors’ court in Naples
on Wednesday asked a Nigerian-Italian lawyer to show him his
qualifications to prove he was a lawyer.
    Hilarry Sedu, a councillor on the local lawyers’ guild, said he
was “disappointed” about the incident but declined to speak of
racism.
    Seddu, who stood unsuccessfully for he centre-left Democratic
Party (PD) at the most recent local elections, said “the new
honorary magistrate asked me to show her my lawyer’s permit, so
I did.
    “Either stunned or stupid, she asked me if I was a lawyer and
then whether I had a law degree.
    “I’m telling you, it was no joke. Impulsive as I am, I was
tempted to insult her, but I decided to put the good of the case
before me because the lives of my client and her daughter depend
on it.
    “No, it’s not racism, just idiocy.
    “It’s the incompetence of an administrative body that doesn’t
know how to select the private components of the judicial
machine”. (ANSA).
