Ex-senator Yasmeen Shah’s BA degree declared fake


Declaring former senator Yasmeen Shah’s graduation degree fake, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) ordered on Monday that her salary and allowances be taken back.

In its detailed verdict, the ECP pointed out that Yasmeen had submitted a fake Bachelor of Arts degree at the time she was elected senator in 2003.

Former National Assembly speaker Dr Fehmida Mirza had filed a petition against Yasmeen.

A five-member bench of the polls supervisory body headed by Chief Election Commissioner Justice (retd) Justice Sardar Raza Khan heard the case.

The bench cancelled the notification through which Yasmeen was declared senator.

The former senator and her husband Ali Bux Shah aka Pappu Shah, an influential couple of Badin, lost both the 2008 and 2013 general elections.
