ISLAMABAD: (HRNW) The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has reserved verdict in a petition challenging dissolution of the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), ARY News reported on Wednesday.
After completion of the arguments from the parties, the high court reserved verdict in the PMDC dissolution case. Additional Attorney General Tariq Khokhar concluded arguments while representing the Centre.
Tariq Khokhar pleaded the court to thoroughly observe the case details while giving judgement as the matter is currently under discussion in the Parliament.
Barrister Zafarullah objected and said that the courts should give a verdict instead of delaying the matter if the case is related to the fundamental rights.
Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani remarked, “Can a court issue an order to the parliament?”
The counsel replied that the court could not issue directives to the parliament, however, the ordinance can be challenged. The judge remarked that the bill is in parliament and it is not an emergency matter but for the general situation.
