AG appointment challenged in SC


Express April 22, 2010

ISLAMABAD: The appointment of Justice (retired) Maulvi Anwarul Haq as Attorney General has been challenged in the Supreme Court (SC).

The petition filed by Aslam Ghuman stated that Justice Haq had committed contempt of court by taking oath under the Provisional Constitutional Order.

According to the petition, a case had also been filed against Justice Haq in the Supreme Court.

Justice Haq was appointed as the new attorney general after former attorney general Anwar Mansoor resigned, citing non-cooperation from the law ministry in the re-opening of Swiss cases against President Zardari.

s ashar | 11 years ago | Reply any a g appointment has to be an impartial man, today with the active lawyers, any candidate not meeting the criteria would be constantly an issue for all, as work suffers in courts. hope the law minister would do his best
ND | 11 years ago | Reply Govt's malafide intention to protect our honorable president against swiss cases can be judged through the recent appointment of AG Maulvi Anwar ul haq, who has close attachment to our Federal minister Mr Awan, as AG's father was the first teacher of Mr Awan when he started his Law Practice, the second thing itself is the above news. Now there is no doubt in mutual understanding between the AG office and Law Ministry which leaves many doubts for public at large!
