PPP believes in restoration of deposed judged : Farooq Naek PDF Print E-mail

ISLAMABAD, Aug 28 (APP): Minister for Law and Justice Farooq H. Naek Thursday said that the PPP leadership has always been saying that it believes in restoration and reappointment of deposed judges.

Talking to a private television channel, the Minister said that stakeholders, rather than politicizing this purely a technical issue, should assist the government in finding an amicable solution in this regard.

He said the government was sincere in all the commitments that it made for the restoration of deposed judges but there were some legal matters involved in this process which ought to be addressed prior to a decision in this regard.

He said the Constitution is silent with regard to restoration of deposed judges.

The Minister said that after withdrawal of November 3 PCO on December 15, the sitting judges of the Supreme Courts including Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar took the oath under Schedule 3 of the Constitution.

Now the situation on ground is that, in the presence of one Chief Justice, how can another one be appointed.

Such are the legal issues which ask for deliberation from all the stakholders, the Minister said.

He said the government does not want to create an environment of confrontation within the institutions by making the hasty decisions.

The Minister said that the deposed judges who want to come back to their offices, would be welcomed.

He said the Sindh High Court judges who have recently taken the oath of their office have done so willingly and they were not forced to do so.

To a question, he said that the parliament has neither validated the November 3 act of General ® Pervez Musharraf nor it intends to do so. So there is no question of validation of this step if the deposed judges take fresh oath, he added.

Naek said that parliamentary resolutions are just the formal requests which are rarely implemented.

If a resolution is passed by the parliament with regard to restoration of deposed judges how it would be implemented, he asked.

So the conditions on ground require to pursue a constitutional and legal process to avoid problems in this regard, he said.

He expressed the hope that PMLN would come back in the coalition in the days to come.

Responding to another question, the Minister said that all the cases against Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and Asif Ali Zardari were fabricated and despite spending huge amount from the public kitty the prosecutors could not prove any thing against them.
