Fake degree: SC restores NA membership of PTI leader
ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Thursday restored the National Assembly membership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader, Ghulam Sarwar Khan, ARY News reported Thursday.
A three-member SC bench headed by Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali withdrew its verdict issued on July 18, 2013 wherein the NA membership of PTI lawmaker was suspended on charges of holding fake academic degree.
The Lahore High Court has given its verdict in favour of Sarwar, hence no ground stands valid to keep his suspension from the NA membership, the SC bench said.
The SC said people of NA-53 could not be kept deprived of a leader.
