LHCBA appeals to LHC CJ for transfer of registrar


LAHORE: The Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA) on Saturday made a request to the Lahore High Court chief justice for transferring Registrar Syed Khursheed Anwar Rizvi. In a letter to the LHC CJ, the bar leaders said Rizvi always ‘misled the judicial authorities since he took over the registrar office and also blamed him for tarnishing bar-bench relations’. They said Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar in a suo motu notice of Multan’s new judicial complex also held Rizvi responsible for the mess. They alleged: “Rizvi, being the Lahore High Court registrar, always tries to cashes in on the situation in case of misunderstanding between the bar and the bench. The registrar was behind the refusal of cases’ filing in Okara, transfer of cases from Shorkot to Jhang and the cases which were fixed for hearing in Bahawalnagar but shifted to Pakpattan. He is responsible for lack of supply of edibles to the bar. It was an old practice that the vehicles used to supply the edibles to the bar but he banned it.” The bar members threatened to go on strike and boycott of the courts if no action was taken.–Staff Reporter
