Attorney General of Pakistan Anwar Mansoor Khan has suspended the orders against Federal Minister Farogh Naseem Khan for cancellation of his membership as a Chairman of Pakistan Bar Council (PBC). The formal hearing on the Federal Minister petition will be held on July 3.
The show-cause notice served to the Minister asked the Minister why did not he remove his name from the role of Pakistan Bar Council after assuming the charge as the Minister? Another main reason of resolution was presidential references filed against Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Sindh High Court judge KK Agha.
“The move of filing the references by the government against both these judges smacks [of] mala fide of the government. The manner and haste shown in filing the references and their timing also raise eyebrows in the legal fraternity. Therefore, we disapprove this move,” it added.
It is pertinent to mention here that the PBC on June 12 has canceled his membership as a member of the PBC while vice-chairman of the PBC has served the Minister show-cause notice on June 15.
Earlier the Karachi Bar Association (KBA) had suspended the membership of the Minister and Attorney General Anwar Mansoor Khan over filing the reference against Supreme Court judges Justice Qazi Fayiz Essa and Justice KK Agha in the Supreme Judicial Council.
