RAWALPINDI: The degrees of 48 lawyers of Rawalpindi district courts were found to be fake on Thursday.

Secretary General of District bar Rawalpindi, Khurram Masood Kiyani said these lawyers were practicing for the last 10 to 23 years in the Lahore High Court Rawalpindi Bench.

He stated that lawyers with fake degrees were let off without legal reprisal only after they took an oath not to practice law in the future.

The Secretary General added that cases will be registered against lawyers with fake degrees, while High Court Bar Association's Joint Secretary Aisamul Haq Satti demanded the concerned authorities to verify degrees of the whole legal fraternity including judges of lower and apex courts.

Yasir Qadeer | 11 years ago | Reply This shows how deeply corruption is rooted in our system. On the other hand, media is reporting the fake degrees of other professionals as well. This should tell the politicians that this is not a personal war.
