Restoration Of Deposed SC Judges Has Been Challenged In IHC
An application has been filed in the Islamabad High Court, challenging restoration of deposed judges of the Supreme Court, including Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhamamd Chaudhry. According to reports, Advocate Shah Jahan on Saturday filed the application under article 99 of the Constitution, noting that Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani’s order to restore judges was unconstitutional as there was no provision in the Constitution for restoring the deposed judges. The application contended restoration of the judges under executive order was in complete violation of the Constitution. However, it was yet to be accepted or rejected for hearing by the court registrar.
