Prime Minister (PM) Shahbaz Sharif has ordered to withdraw curative reference against the senior most judge of Supreme Court (SC) Justice Qazi Faez Isa.
PM has directed law minister to withdraw curative reference.
Sources said the government while deciding not to pursue reference has said the curative reference was filed on weak and baseless basis.
PM said justice Qazi Faez Isa and his family members were harassed and maligned in the name of reference. This was not reference. It was revengeful act by Imran Khan against the judge who is treading on the path of law and constitution.
It was a nefarious conspiracy for ambushing the independence of judiciary and dividing it, he added. PML-N and its allied parties had condemned this false reference when they were in opposition. President Arif Alvi became partner in lying. Pakistan Bar Council and others lawyers organizations had opposed it .We respect their opinion
