PBC says Chaudhry 'himself has lost credibility'ISLAMABAD: Former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Thursday wrote a letter to the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) and asked for the rejection of a presidential reference against Justice Qazi Faez Isa. Calling the reference “against constitutional provisions, false, untrue, without substance and motivated,” the former chief justice asked for the reference to be rejected without further proceedings. In his letter, Chaudhry also alleged that the reference against Justice Isa does not state anywhere that he violated any Article of the Code of Conduct. The council also took serious note of a statement issued by former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry “who himself has lost the credibility” that he would lead the movement against the filing of references. The government has filed a complaint at the SJC against alleged misconduct of two superior court judges, which includes Justice Isa, who hold foreign properties either in their own names or through their spouses.
