ISLAMABAD - Pakistan’s Supreme Court has ordered the election commission to file cases against parliamentarians who hold fake degrees, a media report said.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry gave this ruling while hearing a plea filed by a former member of the national assembly, Amir Yar Awaran, against his disqualification over the alleged possession of a bogus degree, the Online news agency reported.
The court asked the election commission to file cases against fake degree holders as early as possible.
