Justice Qazi Isa alleges the former CJ of biasness
Islamabad, 8th December: Justice Qazi Faez Isa has alleged that former chief justice, Justice Khosa has been biased and wanted his resignation.
According to reports, since he filed a presidential reference in May last year, top court judge Qazi Faez Isa has been consistently accusing that former chief justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa was biased against him.
“In retrospect, and keeping in mind what the Hon’ble Chief Justice had earlier spoken to the petitioner Justice Isa on the walking track behind the SC building, it becomes clear that the reason for ‘informally’ telling the petitioner about the reference was to secure his resignation,” said the review petition.
However, Justice Isa acknowledged that he has immense respect for his senior colleague and that he has learnt a lot from the experience and expertise of CJ Khosa in criminal matters while working with him at the Supreme Court.
“It is, therefore, all the more puzzling that Khosa has disrespected, disparaged, denigrated and castigated the petitioner in the strongest of terms,” it read.
It was also reported by the Express Tribune that last year Justice Isa in his petition stated that a month before the filing of the reference, Justice Khosa had discussed the matter with him while walking outside the SC building.
Sources close to Justice Khosa revealed that the former CJ had urged Justice Isa to simply dismiss review petitions filed against his judgment in Faizabad case and not to pass any severe observation against the state institutions.
However, it is said that it was just an elder’s advice to help Justice Isa avoid any further controversy. Justice Isa had not attended the full-court reference organized in honour of Justice Khosa at his retirement.
