Reference against Justice Isa
Impeachment of President Alvi demanded
Islamabad: ( NA Report) In an expected development following the government of Imran Khan’s move against sitting Supreme Court Judge Justice Isa Qazi, the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) on Saturday demanded President Arif Alvi’s impeachment for filing a reference against apex court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa.
SCBA President Amanullah Kanrani stated the legal fraternity’s stance during a press conference. The reference alleges that the apex court judge did not declare foreign property in his wealth statement. It seems prima facie that the government has no homework rather it seems to be a grudge against the judges. Federal Law Minister Farogh Naseem is reportedly not with the general perception that the reference is based on Assets Recovery Unit information that the judges purchased properties abroad and did not disclose in their wealth statement.
It is not irrelevant here that the laws in Pakistan keep on changing. The amnesty for tax schemes time and again launched in past few years, two in the current regime are evident enough that the laws are made, fabricated and exploited for the vested interest. Even the constitutional amendments are there that too were crafted for the political gains by some vested interest. However this time the lawyers are visibly getting united against the government of Imran Khan and his President Alvi who signed the judicial reference and submitted to the Supreme Judicial Council. If at all the pressure persists the U Turn may take place this time too.
