Lawyers to take on PM

after JIT report


Lahore: Lawyers have said they will decide their movement against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif soon after the JIT submits its report before the Supreme Court in Panama case. After participating in National Action Committee constituted by Lahore High Court Bar Association and Supreme Court Bar Association, Islamabad High Court Bar Association President Arif Chaudhary also held a press conference with the local lawyers’ leaders. SCBA Secretary Aftab Bajwa and the LHCBA office bearers were also present there on the occasion. The black coats also strongly condemned the ministers over criticising the Joint Investigation Team. Arif Chaudhary alleged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was making fun of the JIT instead of ensuring its independent working. He urged the PM to fulfill his constitutional obligation and ensure respect of state institutions. The bars would decide their future discourse soon after the report of JIT before the Supreme Court by calling meeting of National Action Committee, Chaudhary added. However, he added, the lawyers would continue their weekly protest against the PM. LHCBA Secretary Aamir Saeed Rawn said the lawyers were united and would not hesitate from any sacrifice for the protection of state institutions. –Staff reporter
