Justice Asif Khosa stabbed me in the back: Justice Isa

Observer Report

Supreme Court Justice Qazi Faez Isa alleged on Thursday that former chief justice Asif Saeed Khosa had betrayed him and “stabbed him” in the back.

Justice Isa made the remarks during a hearing of the review petitions filed against the June 19, 2020, apex court judgement about the presidential reference against him.

Justice Umar Ata Bandial presided over the 10-judge SC bench which conducted the hearing.

“The Supreme Judicial Council has murdered justice,” Justice Isa said, adding that President Dr Arif Alvi “did not bother” to reply to three letters of his and that he hadn’t even received a copy of the presidential reference filed against him.

He said despite that, noise and voices against him had started on the media and “fifth-generation warfare” was initiated against him and his family.

“Former chief justice Asif Saeed Khosa stabbed me in the back without listening to my stance,” Justice Isa remarked.
