Pakistan’s Shame: The Supreme Court Bench that ran away

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Supreme Court Bench that ran away


For this dishonorable bench to hide behind a Winter vacation Calendar, is as disgraceful, as shameful and as flimsy as Nawaz hiding behind the Qatari Prince’s letter.

No shame. No respect.  No pain for the country. No professionalism and above all no ethics, morality and sense of justice.

Everything that this infamous Supreme Court and especially this bench of 5 did is highly questionable.

First lying low, and like Nero and Caligula, power intoxicated and merry making, from April to October, while Pakistan burned.

Then deciding to take on the case and setting the Nov 1st date, for the first hearing, one day before Imran threatens Armageddon.

It stinks.  It stinks all across the Margallas

These actions are an absolute disgrace to their institution and to each individual who was and is part of this infamous bench.

Why on earth would you take on a case, set high expectations and then slink away like rats under the pretense of “Winter Holidays” ?

Under what compulsions did these so called lordships wake up from their damn power induced intoxication of 7 months in the first place?

And then what prompted these so called lordships to jump ship and throw this bag of crap to another bench?

The entire lawyer community should hang it’s head in shame.

These 5 SC judges, especially the CJ, basically covered their backsides, and some hoping for some crumbs to come their way, post retirement .

It was clear that this disgraceful bench had already made up its mind to dump the case when they “asked” both parties about forming a Commission.

Is that how the Supreme Court of our land works?

How many money launderer’s, crooks, criminals have been offered” Commissions” by these people who now disgrace the sacred role of Supreme Court Justice?

 How many commissions, you dishonorable lordships, how many?

You’re a disgrace to these sacred seats you occupy, my dear dishonorable lordships or whatever you are called.

A disgrace!

They even indirectly urged Imran’s  lawyers to opt for a commission, subtly implying that his case was weak.

They also knew Nawaz would accept the commission, and thus so these 5 stooges could rid themselves of having to decide the case.

Imran didn’t take the bait so they were only left with an option that a lowly clerk and  “Babu” is left with.

Sir may nay Chhuttee Jaana Hai. Mayree Behann Ki Shaadee Hai!

Some stupid rules and procedures of winter vacations.

What utter nonsense!

The Supreme Court Bench that ran away

 

 

 

The three essentials for democracy are: 

  1. Fair and free judiciary and 
  2. Fair and free elections. 

Neither of those two essential requirements ever existed in Pakistan. 

  1. The third requirement is that the first two are supported and upheld by the majority of the elite and educated class. Most of those are seen cozying up to the offspring of the chief thugs, the owners of dynastic parties.

The judiciary in question here is not concerned with truth or justice, they appear to be more concerned about their post-retirement bonuses which will be indeed huge – keeping them rolling in money for years and what will be left of it, will be packed with them in their coffins for the hereafter.

Theoretically, the only powerful segment that could make some difference could be the army, but they are not about to take any steps for at least another two election cycles as per the doctor’s instructions – Dr. Uncle Sam, that is. By then, it may be the end of the story. We might as well change the name from Pakistan to Thuggistan.

We knew the Panama case was not going anywhere – Many of us wanted to have some hope against the hope – Hoping that there was a light at the end of the long dark tunnel. Yes, there was a light at the end of the tunnel, but that was the train coming from the opposite side to blow up the hope if there was any.

SHAMELESS CREATURE ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH : Rs7m spent on ex-CJ’s temporary residence

SHAMELESS CREATURE ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH

Rs7m spent on ex-CJ’s temporary residence

 

 

 
DAWN

Former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry — File photo

 

ISLAMABAD: After his retirement last December, former Supreme Court chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has comfortably settled into a government house next to his old official residence for six months. However, what is disturbing is that the renovation and maintenance work done at his ‘temporary’ abode has cost over Rs7 million.

According to official details of renovation and maintenance at the residence of the former CJ available with Dawn, the amount has been spent on the purchase of new furniture, bathroom fittings, curtains, wooden floor and rugs.

Just the purchase of new furniture cost Rs1.6m and renovation of bathrooms ran up a bill of Rs1.4m.

The ex-chief justice, who retired on Dec 11, left his former official residence and was given house No 12 in the Judicial Enclave, where a judge of the apex court was residing.

According to official details of renovation work, Rs1.6m was spent on the purchase of new furniture, Rs1.4m utilised on renovation of bathrooms, Rs0.6m on bathroom fittings, Rs0.27m on whitewashing, Rs0.75m on purchase of new curtains, Rs0.15m on supply of new rugs, Rs0.6m on construction of a shed, Rs0.35m on laying of wooden floor, Rs0.35m on purchase of floor tiles, Rs0.25m on roof treatment and Rs0.2m on purchase and fixing of marble slabs.

It has been learnt that some of the work is still in progress and the details of these expenses will be known later.

The opposition has already obtained information about what it termed ‘extravagance’ committed in the name of maintenance and brought the matter to the notice of parliament.

An inside source said the former CJ,  asked for renovation and maintenance work in his present official residence soon after he shifted his family there.

The order was conveyed to the Pakistan Public Works Department (Pak PWD), which is responsible for maintenance work in many government buildings, including the Prime Minister House, the Presidency, Supreme Court building, Ministers’ Enclave and Judicial Enclave.

However, a senior official of the Pak PWD, under whose domain the Judicial Enclave fell, refused to carry out heavy maintenance work in the residence. He said he did not have the funds required to meet the expenses of the extraordinary maintenance work.

Later the case was referred to the Pak PWD headquarters and the department’s top brass gave approval for the work.

 

The DG said whatever amount had been spent on the residence of the former CJ had not been approved by him. “I have neither seen any such estimates nor approved them,” he claimed.

In reply to a query, Mr Akhtar said the former CJ has been provided a house in the Judicial Enclave for six months, for which he was authorised.

Opposition curious

An opposition politician, Senator Farhatullah Babar, said he had sent a question to the Senate Secretariat asking for details of the amount spent on lodging, security and stay of the former CJ in his new house. “We have already invoked parliamentary instruments to find the truth behind reports of extravagance at public expense in massaging the ego of individuals. We will then [raise] the issue in parliament appropriately,” he added.

“One is not surprised given the well-known penchant of the former CJ for protocol, security, pomp and show,” Mr Babar said.

Supreme Court Registrar Dr Faqir Hussain told Dawn he was not aware of the maintenance and renovation work.

The registrar agreed that he would reply to queries on the renovation work if they were e-mailed to him, but was unable to answer them even two weeks after the questions were sent to him.

“I have checked such kind of renovation work at my end but could not find anything. I came to know that all such details would be available with PWD so it is better to contact the PWD people to confirm your report,” the registrar told this reporter.On the other hand, sources said the registrar was fully aware of the work done in the residence of the former CJ because he was coordinating with officials of Pak PWD on the matter.

Information Minister Pervez Rashid, who also holds the portfolio of law, was reluctant to comment on the issue, saying he was not aware of any such renovation and maintenance work.

He, however, said that maybe the condition of the official residence provided to Mr Chaudhry required such a heavy maintenance work. “If such a heavy amount has been spent on that house, even then it would be considered as value addition to an official residence that would be handed over to any other judge after six months’ stay of the former CJ.”
