Pak SC contempt case verdict `judicial martial law`
Islamabad: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Faisal Raza Abidi has said that decision on the issue of contempt of court case by the Supreme Court of Pakistan was actually a ‘judicial martial law’.
“Every student of politics knows that Parliament is supreme but few people don’t want to accept this political and democratic reality,” the Daily Times quoted Abidi, as saying.
He claimed that of all the places, the Chief Justice House Islamabad address was used, but the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) said that he knew nothing.
“Where was justice of the chief justice when his son was running his company from the CJP House, Islamabad.”
Abidi insisted that the PPP always respected the courts and implemented their decisions in letter and spirit.
He also pointed out that his party has been victimised in the past and is being victimised now.
The PPP senator asserted that Parliament was the supreme institution in a democratic setup, and he could prove the supremacy of Parliament with reference to the judiciary.
