Syed Amjad Shah, Vice-Chairman, Pakistan Bar Council, has issued the following statement:-

“The Certificate of Dr. Muhammad Farogh Naseem, to practice as an Advocate was restored by the Pakistan Bar Council, on 28-11-2019, after his having resigned from the office of Federal Minister for Law & Justice and submission of his application for the restoration. But since, subsequently, he has again re-joined the Federal Cabinet as Minister for Law & Justice, his Certificate to practice as an Advocate again stands suspended by operation of law and as such he is not entitled, under the law, to practice as an Advocate unless he gets his Certificate restored after leaving the said Office and applies to the Pakistan Bar Council for restoration.”
