RESOLUTION PASSED BY THE PAKISTAN BAR COUNCIL

IN ITS 210TH MEETING  HELD ON 18-05-2015 AT ISLAMABAD 

R E S O L U T I O N

 

“The Pakistan Bar Council in its 210th meeting held on 18th May, 2015 at Islamabad thoroughly considered and discussed the situation arising out of non-confirmation of two Additional Judges of the High Court of Sindh namely Mr. Shahab Sarki and Mr. Amir Raza Naqvi.

 

The Council was shocked to note that such a decision was taken by the Judicial Commission when the nominees of the Bar Council were not present due to expiry of their respective office.

 

The Council was of unanimous view that these two Judges were not only efficient, competent and good Judges but also enjoyed excellent reputation. It was, therefore, felt that their abrupt non-confirmation and that too in the absence of the representatives of the Bar Council and without registering their opinion the decision of the Judicial Commission is not proper and against all judicial norms.

 

The Council unanimously demands that the decision of the Judicial Commission be reviewed and their cases of confirmation be reconsidered.”
