Lawyer demands for enrollment as Advocate Supreme Court
PESHAWAR: More than 50 lawyers of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province have applied for enrollment as advocates of the Supreme Court of Pakistan; however, despite more than 2-year they did not receive any call from the Pakistan Bar Council regarding their interviews.
This was stated by Muhammad Ashraf Turk, popularly known as Ashraf Khan Gadoon – a Peshawar-based advocate of the high court while talking to media persons here on Tuesday.
He said that he had submitted his application accompanied by Fitness Certificate (granted by the Hon’ble Peshawar High Court), other relevant documents and Rs25000 fee for enrollment as Advocate Supreme Court on June 7, 2018 at the Pakistan Bar Council (PBC) and the officials told him that he would be called for interview, but still he did not receive any call.
Ashraf Khan further stated that he had been waiting for the last two years for his interview in order to get enrolled as he had fulfilled all the requirements in this regard, however, there was no progress so far, adding that he was very worried about the matter due to his being 79 now, so when he would be issued the enrollment certificate?
