ISLAMABAD: There was an understanding with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) that Chief Justice would go on leave if he was restored, revealed Khursheed Shah, leader of the Opposition in National Assembly
After meeting Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, Shah spoke to the reporters and said that the PPP had no objection to judges’ restoration.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should not have formed a committee on Swiss cases, he said.
“The matter is before the court. We will face it there. The judiciary should deliver justice indiscriminately.”
“It seems that Chief Justice is waiting for his retirement as there is no progress in Bhutto murder case.”
Muhammad Mian Soomori, if made the NAB chief, could be controversial, he opined.
He further added that trying Pervez Musharraf for Nov 3 emergency instead of October 12 martial law was like pardoning someone on murder and giving punishment for baton charge.
