The government appointed Justice retired Maulvi Anwar ul Haq as new attorney general of Pakistan on Monday.
The office was laying vacant following the resignation of Anwar Mansoor Khan. The former Attorny General resigned on April 2nd,
protesting non-cooperation from the Law Ministry over the re-opening of Swiss cases against President Zardari. Anwar Mansoor had alleged that the Law Ministry was creating hindrances in the implementation of Supreme Court's verdict on the NRO.
