In a statement issued by APHC (G) on 20.10.2011, it has been alleged that Mr. Shafaqat Hussain Advocate, has made some statement in court on 18.10.2011 with regard to the release of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, which is not based on true facts. Mr. Shafaqat Hussain Advocate has, however, informed the Bar Association that he has not made any such statement on 18.10.2011 in the High court of J&K at Srinagar. The statement according to him has been made by Mr. M. A. Thakur, Govt. Counsel. He has also shown orders of the court dated 18.10.2011 in this regard to us. In view of the statement of Mr. Shafaqat Husain Advocate and the documents shown by him to us, it appears that there has been some communication gap between him and the concerned.
The concerned are therefore, requested to take note of the stand of Mr. Shafaqat Hussain Advocate, so that there is no scope for any further misunderstanding between the Bar and the APHC (G) on that score.
