Court: (SC suspends power of attorney of former AG to represent Sindh police)

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Thursday suspended the power of attorney (vakalat nama) of former Attorney General Irfan Qadir and issued a show-cause notice to him for the annulment of his law practicing license.

The decision comes in the wake of an application moved by Irfan Qadir on Wednesday with a request that two members of a three-judge bench should withdraw from the bench in hearing of the controversial armoured personnel carriers (APCs) deal for the Sindh police.

On last hearing on March 12, the Supreme Court had ordered the Additional Advocate General Sindh, Miran Shah, to inform it how Irfan Qadir, who had a bitter exchange of words with the bench during the course of hearing, was representing the IG Sindh even though the provincial government was being represented by senior advocate Farooq H Naek.
