CJP Nisar to visit Turkey on official invitation this month
ISLAMABAD -  Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar will leave for Turkey on December 16 (Sunday) on an official tour.

He will be visiting the friendly state on a special invitation extended by President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Turkey.

Moreover, after attending the annual spiritual night, the Chief Justice will proceed to Saudi Arabia for performing Umrah.

On Nov 21, the Chief Justice reached Britain where he attended the first event of the campaign at Lincoln’s Inn. He went to another event held by the ‘Centre for Policy Dimensions’ the next day.

The Chief Justice managed to collect millions of rupees as donations from overseas Pakistan to construct dams.

The CJP donated Rs 1 million for the dams fund and asked the countrymen to follow the suite. pakistan’s armed forces have contributed Rs 1 billion for the cause.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has also urged the citizens to actively take part and donate to the fund so that the dams should be built to save future generations.
