LAHORE  -  Lahore High Court judge Yawar Ali has a close association with former Supreme Court judge Khalilur Rehman Ramday, who is the son-in-law of former chief justice of Pakistan Yaqoob Ali Khan, father of Justice Yawar Ali.

Before he was appointed a high court judge on February 19, 2010, Yawar Ali had his longest tenure as the deputy attorney general for Pakistan.

Justice Yaqoob Ali, as the chief justice of Pakistan, had been a pro-democratic person. After the 1977 martial law of Ziaul Haq, he was forced to retire through an amendment to the Constitution by the military ruler. It may be mentioned here that Ramday’s family has a political affiliation with PML-N as his younger brother Asadur Rehman is a sitting member of National Assembly from that party.

In the seniority list of LHC judges, Justice Yawar Ali is at number twelve. He just has four-year standing as an LHC judge.

Before being elevating as a high court judge, Justice Yawar Shah had served as deputy attorney general, and assistant advocate general almost during every government since the second tenure of the Nawaz Sharif government
