Justice Qazi Faez Isa filed yet another plea in Supreme Court of Pakistan
ISLAMABAD – Justice Qazi Faez Isa filed yet another plea in Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Supreme Court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa filed a plea in the apex court on Monday seeking constitution of a full court to hear reference filed against him.
In his petition, the judge contended that the chairman and members of the Supreme Judicial Council were not authorized to conduct hearings on presidential references concerning his offshore properties.
In another plea, the judge challenged the Supreme Judicial Council’s observations against him in a verdict regarding the dismissal of the reference against him for writing letters to President Arif Alvi.
“The council’s order states that the petitioner selectively reveals the truth, discloses without permission a private conversation, pretends ignorance about matters known to him, acts in bad taste, employees distasteful methods, unnecessarily dragging the prime minister and his different spouses and children into the matter, is presumptive, may have a sense of persecution, a sense of hounding, might have overstepped the sense of propriety, stress might have aggravated his sense of harassment and might have contributed towards outrunning of his discretion,” he stated in the petition.
The judge said that he wasn’t even summoned or told about the council meeting on August 19 and had no idea about it.
