OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
TV personality Mona Gucci, known in private life as Monalisa Abigail Samaha, has been trending on social media.
This follows claims she made on UTV that she is an American-trained lawyer with a specialisation in Immigration issues.
Mona Gucci, the host of Kantanka TV's Link Up show, appeared as one of the guests for Nana Ama McBrown's United Showbiz show on Saturday, February 21, 2021.
Among many other things, Mona Gucci claimed that she is an Immigration lawyer who was trained at the Massachusetts School of Law.
Mona Gucci further stated that she worked at a law firm called Abigail Williams and Co in Massachusetts.
Not long after making those claims, social media was awash with posts doubting the truth in what Mona Gucci said.
Afia Schwarzenegger who recently 'beefed' Mona Gucci went on social media to dare her to produce the certificate she got from the law school.
A search by YEN.com.gh has revealed that the Massachusetts Shool of Law (MSLAW) does exist but it does not have accreditation from the American Bar Association (ABA).
A Wikipedia page on the school also reveals that it has been battling the ABA for accreditation with lawsuits among others.
Without the ABA accreditation, MSLAW's graduates are only limited to practice in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
On the Abigail Williams and Co law firm, a check on the internet brings up the name Abigail Williams and Associates in Worcester, Massachusetts
This law firm has, however, been closed down about two years ago. The firm was involved in a big scandal involving lawyers 'stealing' from their clients. The firms named partner, Abigail Williams was indicted and had her licensed suspended.
