KARACHI - Adviser to Chief Minister on Information, Archives, Law and Anti-Corruption Barrister Murtaza Wahab has said that tragedy of May 12 and Baldia Factory Fire were like tragedies against the society.

He said that both the matters had become sub judice and it was for the courts to take decision.

He said that the government would extend full cooperation to the court and implement its orders.

He appealed to the court to expedite the cases to bring culprits to justice. Barrister Murtaza Wahab said that he believed those elements were behind these tragedies who did not want to see democracy flourishing and they wanted to curb dissent and pluralistic society.
