Bar sets up camp against LFO

Published March 11, 2003

LAHORE, March 10: In continuation of its ongoing campaign against the LFO, the Lahore High Court Bar Association on Monday set up a 10-day anti-LFO camp at the LHC.

Inaugurating the camp, LHCBA President Hafiz Abdul Rahman said the lawyers’ struggle against the LFO would go on till its abolition. He reiterated Bar’s warning of stern action against the opposition parties for showing any flexibility in their stance.

The opposition parties’ leaders and people of all walks of life would also be invited to the camp, Mr Rahman said.

Supreme Court Bar Association President Hamid Khan lauded the lawyers’ efforts in staging countrywide rallies against the LFO on March 8.

He claimed that all the Bar associations in the country did not accept Chief Justice Sheikh Riaz Ahmad and Justice Qazi Farooq of the Supreme Court as sitting judges, as they did not quit their offices on their respective dates of retirement this year. They decided to continue with their jobs in the three-year extended tenure given to the superior courts judges.

SCBA Vice-chairman Muhammad Arif Chaudhry and former Provincial Law Minister S M Masood also spoke on the occasion. The camp will be set up till March 20.
