Top lawyers' body demands President Arif Alvi's impeachment
SCBA President Amanullah Kanrani stated on Saturday that the reference filed against Justice Isa was “condemnable” and that the nation meted out similar treatment to Fatima Jinnah.
The SCBA president also highlighted Justice Isa’s services to the nation saying, the Supreme Court judge had “exposed” terrorism and “people who do not speak against terrorists are facilitators of terrorism”.
Kanrani announced that on June 14, the legal fraternity will gather to express solidarity with the judges.
The SCBA head also urged lawmakers to file an impeachment reference against the president, terming him [Alvi] a dummy president; Kanrani went on to say that the president had “no rhyme or reason to hold office”.
The issue of reference against the judges of the superior judiciary has brought the judicial community and the govt to a collision course.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government has lodged a complaint with the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) against alleged misconduct of two superior court judges, who hold foreign properties either in their own names or through their spouses.
Recently, the Upper Chamber of the Parliament approved a resolution condemning the govt's move in this regard.
