‘PA not legally bound to im­ple­ment CII pro­pos­als’


LAHORE—Law Min­is­ter Rana Sanaullah says the Pun­jab As­sem­bly is not legally bound to im­ple­ment the rec­om­men­da­tions of the Coun­cil of Is­lamic Ide­ol­ogy (CII) on any sub­ject.

“The Coun­cil of Is­lamic Ide­ol­ogy has not sent any rec­om­men­da­tions on the Women Pro­tec­tion Act and even if such rec­om­men­da­tions are re­ceived, the Pun­jab As­sem­bly may con­sider the same and amend the act only if ap­pro­pri­ate as the house is not legally bound to im­ple­ment the CII sug­ges­tions,” he told the me­dia at the pro­vin­cial as­sem­bly here on Thurs­day.

Re­spond­ing to a query about al­leged cor­rup­tion of Ali Im­ran, a son-in-law of Chief Min­is­ter Shah­baz Sharif, he said though a vil­i­fi­ca­tion cam­paign is un­der way against Im­ran, in­struc­tions have been is­sued to in­ves­ti­gate his 18 prop­er­ties. He said Im­ran is the owner of Ali Trade Cen­tre in which Pun­jab Power Com­pany’s Ikram Naveed had pur­chased some of­fices and flats which are be­ing in­ves­ti­gated and not be­cause of any wrong­do­ing of the CM’s son-in-law.
