ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Barrister Farogh Naseem has on Monday resigned as the federal minister for law to represent the federation in the Justice Qazi Faez Isa case before the Supreme Court (SC).
The law minister has forwarded his resignation to Prime Minister Imran Khan. The Supreme Court (SC) is scheduled to resume hearing of the case on June 2 (Tuesday).
A 10-member judge bench, headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial, will conduct hearing. The federal government will respond over Justice Qazi Faez Isa’s petition in which he maintained that the presidential reference against him is based on malafide intent.
The last hearing of the case was conducted on February 24 in which the federal government had sought three weeks adjournment.
It is pertinent to mention here that Farogh Naseem will represent federation after AGP Khalid Javed recused himself from representing the federal government in the presidential reference filed against Justice Qazi Faez Isa.
Last year in November, Law Minister Farogh Naseem also resigned from the post to represent Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Jawed Bajwa as a lawyer in extension case before the Supreme Court (SC).
