ISLAMABAD - Prominent lawyer Naeem Bukhari Reportedly rejects big offer made by Prime Minister Imran Khan.Naeem Bokhari has refused to become the attorney general of Pakistan after former AGP resigned from the post
The government is looking for the new AGP after Anwar Mansoor earlier today stepped down as government’s top lawyer following his controversial statement during the proceedings of Justice Qazi Faez Isa case in the Supreme Court.
Bukari had jointed the PTI in 2016 when he had also led the Panama case representing his party after Hamid Khan disassociated himself from the case against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Sources said that the government approached Naeem Bukhar and Makhdoom Ali Khan to appoint one of them as the next AGP but both have excused from holding the post.
Now, the government has contacted another senior lawyer Ali Zafar who has sought time to ponder over the proposal.
The government, according to the sources, is also considering the name of Advocate General Punjab Ahmad Jamal Sukhera.
