ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) sought Law Ministry’s advise to remove lawyers with poor performance for proceeding of its pending cases in courts.
As per details, FBR asked Law ministry to handover performance report of lawyers who were preceding the FBR cases in courts. FBR has decided to remove the solicitors showing poor performance adding that only capable lawyers with good track record will proceed the FBR cases in courts.
FBR legal wing wrote a letter to Law ministry in which it asked the ministry to prepare a report on performance of lawyers preceding FBR cases in courts. The step has been taken after the complaints about delaying tactics from FBR lawyers in pending cases of FBR.
Currently FBR has the highest amount of writ filed against it and lowest number of point of law references.
