Aitzaz Ahsan returns 'sadqah' money to CJP Saqib Nisar's son
On March 24, the chief justice informed Ahsan that a Rs10,000 fine imposed by the Supreme Court on him has been paid by CJP's son, Najam Nisar. He added that his son had paid the fine as "Sadqah" as Ahsan was reluctant to pay it.
“My son said I will pay Aitzaz uncle’s fine,” the CJP said and ordered court staff to hand over the fine receipt to Ahsan.
In a letter sent by Ahsan to Najam Nisar, the lawyer said: “I had not intended to recognise the liability as I was on general adjournment allowed by your illustrious father, and the imposition being without notice. But since you have paid it on my behalf, this may embarrass your illustrious father that his son pays on behalf of a person he has imposed a liability upon.”
