Traders and Lawyers form Joint Committee for shifting of District Courts from F-8 September 05, 2015
Meeting at ICCI
 
Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Islamabad Bar Association have constituted a Joint Committee of traders and lawyers to work for the shifting of district courts from F-8 Markaz. Muhammad Ejaz Abbasi, former President Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Zahid Mahmood Raja, President, Islamabad Bar Association would jointly head the Committee. 
 
During its first meeting at ICCI, the Joint Committee discussed many options for finding out a permanent solution for shifting of district courts from F-8 and agreed that presence of courts in F-8 Markaz was not only a security threat for the lives of Honorable Judges and lawyers, it was also a major hurdle in the smooth growth of business activities in this business area. Therefore, the Committee felt that there was a great need to shift the district courts from F-8 commercial center to another suitable place as early as possible. 
 
The Committee was of the view that it was not an issue of traders and lawyers only, but it was the issue of Islamabad. It was also agreed that all relevant forums would be approached for finding out amicable solution of this serious issue. 
 
The Committee decided to hold a press conference on 10th September 2015 at ICCI to highlight the seriousness of this issue and to invite the attention of the government for its urgent resolution. 
 
Zafar Bakhtawari, Khalid Iqbal Malik, Naeem Siddiqui, Naeem ur Rehman Piracha, Tariq Junaid and Khalid Chaudhry from Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry while Ch. Asif Irfan, Malik M. Akram, Hafiz Mazhar Javed, Ms. Farzana Faisal, Ms. Nusrat Parveen, from Islamabad Bar Association were the other members of the Committee.
