NRO Case: SC rejects govt plea to change lawyer

Supreme CourtISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Monday rejected the federal government’s plea to change its lawyer in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) case, DawnNews reported.

The apex court further ordered the government to withdraw the notification of Barrister Kamal Azfar’s appointment as Advisor to the Prime Minister.

A three-member bench of the court was hearing a government plea for change of counsel in the case.

During the hearing, the notification of Azfar’s appointment as Advisor was produced before the court.

Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry observed that the government should retract Azfar’s appointment notification to enable him to represent the former in the NRO review petition.

The court rejected the government’s request and ordered Barrister Kamal Azfar to appear before the court on behalf of the government in the hearing of the case on October 13.

Earlier on Saturday, Advocate-on-Record Raja Abdul Ghafoor had filed an application in the apex court seeking more time in the NRO review petition to engage another counsel in place of Barrister Azfar.
