LAHORE: A British-Pakistani lawyers’ association on Monday expressed serious concerns about safety of properties and assets of overseas Pakistanis in the country, urging lawyers to play their role and help expatriates. 

Barrister Amjad Malik, chairman of the association, said that over 9 million citizens were working abroad for development and prosperity of the country, but their properties and assets had been at stake at home.

He expressed these views while talking to LHCBA former president Shafqat Chohan during a meeting at the local bar. He said that overseas Pakistanis worked hard for country’s development.  Chohan said that lawyers would get a resolution passed by the bar for legal assistance of aggrieved citizens.–Staff Reporter
