The Sindh High Court (SHC) restrained the Pakistan Women Lawyers Welfare and Charitable Trust from interfering into the affairs of the Pakistan Women Lawyers Association (PAWLA).
The interim order came on a lawsuit of PAWLA against the occupation of its office by the Pakistan Women Lawyers Welfare and Charitable Trust.
PAWLA President Noor Naz Agha and other office-bearers submitted that the association is registered for the last 30 years and it had nothing to do with the trust while some office-bearers were trying to grab the office of the association for the trust. The association sought injunction against the defendant with the direction to restrain them from interfering into the affairs of the plaintiff. The SHC single bench after preliminary hearing of the plaintiff counsel granted interim stay and restrained the defendants from interfering into the affairs of the plaintiff till further orders.
