LHC lawyers warned to clear dues


LAHORE: More than 5,000 lawyers of the Lahore High Court Bar who have not cleared their dues amounting to over Rs190 million will not be able to cast their votes in the next bar elections. This was stated by LHCBA Secretary Sabahat Rizvi in Lahore. He warned the lawyers who have not cleared their dues so far that their participation in the next bar elections could not be possible and they could not cast their votes. They would be considered defaulters and their right to casting vote would be forfeited, he added. The secretary said that despite several warnings and reminders by the LHCBA office-bearers, lawyers shied away from clearing their dues. He said that it may be due to sky rocketing inflation that the defaulting lawyers were reluctant to submit their dues. DNA
