ISLAMABAD, (TLTP): Lawyer refused to defend Pakistan Agriculture Research Council (PARC) before Islamabad High Court (IHC) on the grounds that people at the helm of affairs were using delaying tactics for lingering the case about regularization of as many as 352 daily wagers employees.
Talking to TLTP on Monday, advocate Umer Sajjad Chaven informed that a division bench of the High Court has asked the PARC secretary to appear in person for the court assistance in the matter, however, the secretary failed to turn up in the matter.
Chaven claimed that he repeatedly communicated to the Council’s secretary to make sure his presence before the bench in pursuance of the court directives but he failed to observe the court orders.
Consequently, advocate Umer decided to withdraw his power of attorney in the matter stating he has communicated to the PARC Chairman in written that since PARC legal department is not complying with the direction of the IHC so he is unable to appear on behalf of the PARC in the case of regularization of a total of 352 daily wagers employees.
