Attack on judges implies govt’s insecurity, says Maryam


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday lashed out at the government for filing a misconduct reference against senior judges.

In a tweet, Maryam said that filing references against honourable judges is a dictatorial decision by a “fake government” and implies its insecurity. Referring to the dismissal of Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui, she said that what started with the sacking of an Islamabad High Court (IHC) judge has now transformed into a full-fledged act of oppression.

She urged the legal fraternity and members of the civil society to act against such decisions with the same intensity with which they opposed the decisions of former military dictator General (r) Pervez Musharraf.

She alleged that the government is removing judges that do not take dictation and give out judgments purely on a legal basis.

She further said that PML-N would strongly oppose all such decisions.
