Farogh Naseem sworn in as law minister – for third time

Islamabad (Web Desk): Dr Farogh Naseem on Friday rejoined the federal cabinet as law minster for the third time.


President Arif Alvi administered the oath at a ceremony in Aiwan-e-Sadr.

Naseem had resigned as federal minister for law ahead of the final hearings of the presidential reference against Supreme Court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa case in order to represent the government before a 10-judge full court led by Justice Umar Ata Bandial.

The apex court, while quashing the reference, had ordered the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to start proceedings against the judge’s family under tax law.
