Naeem-ud-Din Chaudhry Advocate, the spokesperson of the PAT legal team, has said that the larger bench of the Lahore High Court is hearing the Model Town JIT case that has been lying unattended for the past two and a half years. He said that the larger bench asked important legal questions from the lawyers of the accused on the second day of the hearing which they failed to answer. He said that if the hearing continued in the same manner, the case will be decided soon. He said that the restoration of the JIT is a must for the provision of justice in the Model town case.
Naeem-ud-Din Chaudhry Advocate said that the lawyers of the accused made an effort to delay the hearing inordinately, adding that it has been the standard practice of the Sharif brothers that when they do not get the kind of relief they want, they resort to using the delaying tactics. He said that we are happy that the Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court did not give a new date of hearing and took a keen interest in the proceedings. He said that the third consecutive hearing will be conducted on Sept 16.
Naeem-ud-Din Chaudhry Advocate further stated that Barrister Ali Zafar, Dr Khalid Ranjha Advocate, Azhar Siddique Advocate, Lehrasib Gondal Advocate, Anwar Akhtar Advocate, Mahboob Hussain Chaudhry Advocate, Shakeel Mamka Advocate appeared before the larger LHC bench who are representing the oppressed and victims of Model Town tragedy.
