Court Reserves Verdict In PMDC Dissolution

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday reserved verdict in a petition challenging dissolution of the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC).

The verdict was reserved after the completion of the arguments from both parties. Additional Attorney General Tariq Khokhar concluded arguments while representing the federal government.

AAG Khokhar pleaded the court to thoroughly observe the case details while giving judgment as the matter is currently under discussion in the Parliament.

Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani wondered: “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.

Later, the high court reserved a verdict in the case.
