ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Bar Council (PBC) on Monday appreciated the Federal Cabinet and the Federal Law Minister on approval of “Lawyers’ Protection & Welfare Bill-2023” for the safety & protection of legal practitioners.

In a statement issued here, Haroon-ur-Rashid, Vice-Chairman and Hassan Raza Pasha, Chairman, Executive Committee of the Pakistan Bar Council said that it was the long standing demand of the legal fraternity and need of the hour for safety of lawyers, since they are being forgotten since long and large number of lawyers have been murdered during performance of their duties.
