Justice Qazi Faez Isa challenged the presidential reference against him in the Supreme Court on Wednesday and has requested the apex court to issue a restraining order over Supreme Judicial Council proceedings till the court decides on his petition.
Justice Isa personally went to the institution bench of the SC to file a constitution petition under Article 183 (3) of the Constitution. The apex court judge has also challenged another reference filed by a Lahore-based lawyer Waheed Shahzad Butt, stating that Justice Isa violated the code of conduct for members of the judiciary by “writing letters to the president of Pakistan and sharing it with the media”.
