Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar says the cabinet has approved re-constitution of IT Tribunals to swiftly dispose of tax related cases worth billions of rupees pending in the courts.

He said this while addressing a press conference along with Minister for Information and Broadcasting Attaullah Tarar in Islamabad today.

The Law Minister said Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has foregone his powers to appoint the judicial and technical members and now all Chartered Accountants will be hired through a proper channel.

Alluding to the letter written by a judge of the Islamabad High Court to Chief Justice of Pakistan, Azam Nazeer Tarar rejected the impression that judiciary is being pressurized by any institution.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Attaullah Tarar said the request for an in-camera briefing by the Attorney General of Pakistan was made in view of the national security.

He made it clear that no compromise will be made on national security.
