‘Presidential Reference Against Justice Isa Violated Constitution’: SC Issues Detailed Verdict
Supreme Court has issued its detailed verdict in Justice Qazi Faez Isa presidential reference case. The judgement says that the presidential reference filed against Justice Isa was in violation of the law and the Constitution. “…the worthy President grossly failed to exercise his discretion as mandated under the Constitution and, thus, the entire process built thereon leading to the filing of the Reference was in violation of the law and the Constitution,” the verdict read.
The detailed judgment comes four months after the apex court quashed the reference against Justice Isa and deferred the matter to Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).
The SC had quashed the reference accusing Justice Qazi Faez Isa of committing misconduct by not declaring the details of his family’s properties abroad after hearing the petitions against against it for over six months.
