ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Law and Justice has recommended speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser not to issue the production orders of the two tribal MNAs Ali Wazir and Mohsin Dawar, ARY News reported.
The NA speaker had sought legal advice from the Law Ministry on this issue and said the final decision would be taken on the basis of the legal opinion of the Law Ministry.
“Both lawmakers are facing serious allegations of terrorism and other cases. It is against the law to issue the production orders for MNAs who are facing severe charges,” said law ministry in a statement.
