Lawyers in Pakistan call for countrywide strike to seek Sharif's resignation
Lahore [Pakistan], July 18 (ANI): Lawyers in Pakistan have called for a countrywide strike on Wednesday to press for the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in wake of the damning report of the Supreme Court-appointed Joint Investigation Team (JIT), probing the Panama papers case.
Expressing confidence that the Supreme Court will take the panama case to its logical conclusion, Punjab Bar Council Vice Chairman Ahsan Bhoon urged for the disqualification of those nominated in this high-profile case.
The members of the Pakistan Bar Council (PBC) have demanded "punitive action" against Nawaz, Shehbaz, Dar and their accomplices under the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) laws and their prosecution for perjury.
"Will not hesitate to foil any attempt on the part of the ruling party to influence and undermine the dignity and prestige of the apex court", Geo News quoted members as saying, while assuring support of the legal fraternity to the Supreme Court.
Bhoon also called for action against all those who submitted fake documents in the apex court in the panama case. (ANI)
