Gilgit - Baltistan

Supreme Appellate Court says banned lawyers can practice in lower courts, including Chief Court

The Gilgit-Baltistan Supreme Appellate Court has said that there’s no blanket ban on five most prominent lawyers of the region.

“Only their licences to practice in the Supreme Appellate Court have been revoked. They can practice law in lower courts, including the Chief Court of Gilgit-Baltistan, Anti-Terrorism Court, Banking Court, District Courts and Accountability Court”, said a press release issued by the Supreme Appellate Court.

The five lawyers were targeted by the Supreme Appellate Court for launching a movement against efforts to appoint a non-local judge in the GB Supreme Appellate Court, and for boycotting the Supreme Appellate Courts.
