Lawyers for Justice Qazi Faez Isa objected to former Law Minister Farogh Naseem appearing as counsel in a constitutional petition in the Supreme Court on the issue of presidential reference.
The petition states that Farogh Naseem is hostile to Justice Qazi Faez Isa. The reference is based on malice. Farogh Naseem is a party to the case and is an ‘informant’. The former law minister has to appear as a lawyer in the case. It is also a violation of the Practitioners Act.
The petition states that the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation is represented under Article 100. There are 145 lawyers in the Attorney General’s Office. Is such a large staff not qualified and is it just to receive a salary?
On the other hand, former law minister Barrister Farogh Naseem while talking to media said that there is no enmity with Justice Qazi Faez Isa. I respect all the judges of the judiciary including him, nor did I have any enmity with him before and it won’t happen.
It is to be noted that Farogh Naseem resigned from the post of Law Minister to represent the federation in the case of Justice Qazi Isa in the Supreme Court yesterday.
Earlier, he had resigned to appear before the Supreme Court on behalf of General Qamar Javed Bajwa in a case related to the extension of the Army Chief’s tenure.
