Public prosecutors have demanded that the provincial government announce a service structure, perks and privileges for them within a week or else they would start protesting.
The demand was made at the cabinet meeting of Prosecution Welfare Association (PWA) on Monday. The meeting was presided over by association president Said Naeem Khan. General secretary Javed Ali Mohmand and joint secretary Sangeen Shah were also present.
The prosecutors presented a draft during the meeting demanding a proper service structure, timely promotions and provision of perks and privileges to them. They also demanded a proper quota in the high court and construction of separate offices for prosecutors in all courts across K-P. Members of the association also demanded registration of PWA and provision of vehicles to all prosecutors along with provision of security, training institution and Hajj quota.
While speaking to reporters, Shah said, “The government has completely ignored public prosecutors who are facing immense problems due to unavailability of service structure.”
