PESHAWAR: In a major development, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Bar Council has taken decisive action by rescinding the licenses of 20 lawyers in Peshawar following the revelation of falsified Law Graduate Assessment Test (GAT) results. The decision transpired during an executive committee meeting where the fraudulent results were thoroughly scrutinized.

The KP Bar Council disclosed that a comprehensive investigation into the matter was undertaken, culminating in the unequivocal determination that the 20 lawyers had submitted fabricated Law GAT results in order to obtain their licenses. Consequently, the council swiftly invalidated their licenses pending further review.

Revoking licenses is not the sole consequence for the implicated lawyers. The KP Bar Council has recommended pursuing criminal charges against the individuals involved, forwarding the case to the General Body of the Bar. This underscores a resolute commitment to upholding the integrity of the legal profession and ensuring public trust in the certification process.

The authenticity of the Law GAT results came under scrutiny after verification by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) in Islamabad, which revealed the submitted results to be deceitful. This discovery underscores the imperative need for rigorous verification processes to safeguard the credibility and reliability of professional qualifications.

As the legal community in Peshawar grapples with the aftermath of this case, the annulment of licenses serves as a stark reminder of the severe repercussions that individuals may face when attempting to manipulate professional qualifications for personal gain.
