Karachi: In an emergent meeting of members of the Pakistan Bar Council (PBC) held at Karachi under the Chairmanship of Senator, Dr. Barrister Farogh Naseem, Vice Chairman PBC, says in press release.

During the meeting it was resolved that the Pakistan Bar Council is committed to strive for merit in the matters of administration of justice.

The Vice Chairman, Senator, Barrister Dr. Farogh Naseem made it clear that under his captaincy merit alone will be the criteria and, therefore, the CJP was requested to activate the Supreme Judicial Council under article 209 of the Constitution.

Dr. Farogh Naseem further stated that not only the Supreme Judicial Council will have to be activated, but the disciplinary committees of the Pakistan and Provincial Bar Councils are required to dispense unmitigated justice so that any black-sheep in the legal profession is struck off from the Advocates’ rolls.

Furthermore, Dr. Farogh Naseem stated that enrolments of lawyers at all levels are required to be streamlined, again purely on merit. Finally Dr. Farogh Naseem stated that the law universities and colleges throughout Pakistan were required to ensure that standards prescribed by the Pakistan Bar Council were fully met and none will be permitted to abuse the state of affairs.
