SC orders judges’ appointment in special courts by today

The Supreme Court has ordered appointment of special judges for anti-corruption courts in Karachi and Hyderabad, asking the authorities to produce a notification Tuesday (today). A three-member bench, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, heard the case against the absence of judges in the special courts. A deputy attorney general told the bench that a summary for the appointment of judges for anti-corruption courts had been sent. Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary remarked the court’s orders were not being implemented. “Many corrupt and criminal elements are acquitted because of absence of judges,” the chief justice said, directed the high-ups to investigate how many indicted persons got free because of delay in the appointment of judges. Justice Jawad S Khwaja said it seemed the government ws not interested in the corruption and accountability cases. He warned if the government did not accept the court’s order, a contempt of court notice would be issued. The court adjourned the hearing, directing the government to appoint special judges by Tuesday (today).
