Reference on Fire Opposition to SJC continues among lawyers

QUETTA (News Alert Correspondent) The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President Amanullah Kanrani announced that lawyers belonging to Balochistan shall burn the copy of reference filed against apex court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa at the main entrance of the Supreme Court building on June 14. It seems that the political career of the president Arif Alvi who signed the reference and sent to SJC is on stake. The legal fraternity has generally opposed and has even demanded impeachment of the President. A sad scenario when just few months after installation Alvi faces such an opposition.

Kanrani maintained that the legal fraternity from the province would stage a sit-in that shall continue till the withdrawal of the reference or its rejection by the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC).
The legal fraternity, collectively, rejected the reference filed against Justice Isa and termed it a ‘mollified’ move.
The SJC is expected to take up the reference for hearing on the same day.
Legal representatives from bodies including the Balochistan Bar Council, High Court Bar Association and the Quetta Bar Association were present at the occasion. A general observation has prevailed that the reference is to stop Justice Isa to dismiss him through judicial commission well before he is installed as chief justice of Pakistan.
