Reference the article by Barrister Dr Farooq Hassan (Sunday, September 7, 2008), the learned writer, who is a professor at Harvard University, has given clear indications that PML-N wanted to file objection petition against the president-elect Asif Zardari during the presidential election but changed its mind on August 28, 2008. The question here is whether a lawyer can disclose privileged information given to him by a client. Will Mr Hassan please educate us on the subject? -SHAHID, Lahore, via e-mail, September 8.
