In my shul, we have a total of 3 people who know taamim. The rest can barely read Hebrew. The question came up, are they allowed to go up for Maftir, and subsequently read the Berachot of the Haftarah, with someone else reading the actual Haftarah?
My Rabbi in Yeshivah said it's better for them not to go up for maftir,, but if they do the reader of the haftarah must say the berachot before and after the haftarah.
This is contrary to what we do in our shul, where we just let the oleh stand silently, saying the berachot before and berachot after.
Looking for a Sephardic response, please.
