Govt files new plea in NRO case

ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court Tuesday suggested that Additional Attorney General KK Agha can represent the federation during hearing of a government plea for change of its counsel in NRO review petition.

The court said that KK Agha was deputy of the government counsel Kamal Azfar in the case; as per rules he can replace him.

The federation has filed a new plea in Supreme Court for change of the lawyer in NRO review petition.

The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday rejected Federation’s request to replace Kamal Azfar with Khalid Ranjha in review petition on National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

A 17-member full court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry hearing the review plea.

The Chief Justice on Tuesday directed the Additional Attorney General to get directives from the government and argue over the case and added that the case will not be put off for indefinite period.

The court suspended the hearing for brief interval.

Earlier, the Chief Justice said that the government instead of presenting its point of view is wasting the time.
