ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry Wednesday said the judiciary is often blamed but the regrettable aspect is that the parliament passed resolution, approving imposition of emergency.
The CJP said this in his remarks while hearing the constitution petition regarding appointment of high court judges and PCO judges.
Attorney General Latif Khosa said that Pakistan People’s Party was not the part of that resolution.
Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry also said that no precedence exists in the world where martial law had been imposed with an aim to target judiciary. “General Cromwell’s body was exhumed and hanged in country like Britain,” he pointed out.
He said other cases are suffering delays because of the ongoing hearing of petition on judges appointment, as the entire nation awaits the court’s judgment.
