It was a great news to hear that Chief Justice of Pakistan has summoned his own son and Malik Riaz in Supreme Court regarding the report of financial impropriety. Government , Malik Riaz Hussain (Real Estate Mafia lord who runs his business with the help of Army and Government) and other corrupts were trying to corner Supreme Court using this issue. Recently Shaheen Sehbai , a respectable name in the media of Pakistan, uncovered the story in an online interview.
It was a good move by CJP Iftikhkar Muhammad Chaudhary to counter this government conspiracy against the judiciary. Government is trying its best to give a bad name to SC especially after the decision on NRO case. They wanted to repeat what Musharraf did in 2007 but this time justice loving people and honest people in media are ready to deal with the situation.
We are with you Mr. Chaudhary as long as you are giving decisions based on the principles of justice and rule of law. We know army, government and their corrupt allies in feudal and corporatist class are trying to undermine the judiciary but we will do whatever we can to support good actions of Supreme Court of Pakistan.
ISLAMABAD: Taking note of reports of financial impropriety circulating on various social media platforms and media channels, Chief Justice of Pakistan Mohammed Iftikhar Chaudhry sent notices to Dr Arsalan Iftikhar and Malik Riaz, Express News reported early Wednesday morning.
Malik Riaz Hussain is the chief of Bahria Town. Dr Arsalan Iftikhar is the Chief Justice’s son.
A notice has also been sent to the Attorney General of Pakistan
The case is due to be heard on Wednesday June 6, 2012 (today) by a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry himself.
The Chief Justice had taken a suo motu notice of the reports circulating and has summoned the two men allegedly involved in the matter.
Express News correspondent Faisal Shakeel reported that according to sources, the reports on which the suo motu was taken suggest that Dr Iftikhar had taken between Rs300-400 million from Malik Riaz. Shakeel said that the impression given by some of these reports was that the sum was being exchanged on behalf of the Chief Justice for disposing off cases pending before the Supreme Court.
Shakeel clarified that the case at this point in time is not against any one and once hearings start on Wednesday, would seek to establish the authenticity of the reports.
