Supreme Court rejects presidential reference against Justice Qazi Faez Isa

Supreme Court on Friday rejected the presidential reference against Justice Qazi Faez Isa.

Justice Umar Ata Bandial said during the hearing that the judgment will be announced at 4:00 pm today if all the judges reach consensus.

We are answerable to Allah Almighty for all our deeds. He remarked that We are bound to follow the constitution and law.

Earlier, the Federal Board of Revenue provided the tax record of Justice Qazi Faez Isa’s wife in a sealed envelope to Supreme Court.

Justice Qazi’s lawyer Munir Malik also provided the sealed documents in the apex court. He had said that they do not know what the government wants.

Defence lawyer Farogh Naseem told that whatever mentioned in the reference is not our actual case, he added.

Munir Malik told that Justice Qazi has never associated his wife’s property with him. It seems that government has mistakenly come to SC instead of going to FBR for this case, he went on to say.

Earlier, wife of Justice Qazi Faez Isa had recorded her statement via video-link before SC and said that she bought her first property in London in 2004 and her passport was accepted for the purchase of property in United Kingdom.

She told that her agricultural land, which she inherited from her father and does not belong to the husband, is in district Jacobabad, She added that authorities know about her land as government issued her a tax certificate after submission of statement of assets.
