Quetta Bar Association and lawyers from other parts of country held a condolence reference in memory of martyrs of the August 8 Quetta attack. Asma Jahangir’s Independent Group presidential candidate Ahsan Bhoon paid rich tributes to lawyers who were martyred on August 8, 2016. He expressed his serious concern over non-implementation of commission report on the Quetta bombing and all promises made by the provincial government to the families of the slain lawyers.
Ahsan demanded the government to immediate implement the commission report on Quetta carnage that deprived Balochistan of senior lawyers. SCBA President Ahsan Bhoon said that August 8 Quetta carnage was against the sovereignty of the country and lawyers community. He said that the carnage had deprived Balochistan of senior lawyers, creating a gap that could not be filled up for a long time. While addressing the lawyers, Ahsan Bhoon said, “we have a comprehensive plan for the welfare of Balochistan lawyers and we will try our best that the lawyers who belong to Balochistan province should be given all facilities and sources that were provided to the lawyers of other provinces.” He assured that black coats from Balochistan would be given priority to become lawyers in the Supreme Court of Pakistan. Bhoon said that Asma Jahangir Group believes in prosperity and welfare of lawyers and there should be effective representation of Balochistan lawyers in judiciary.
