It is a shame to offer a car to retired judges: Justice Faiz Isa

Supreme Court Judge Qazi Faiz Issa, in a letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan, termed the proposal to provide vehicles to retired judges as inappropriate and shameful.

In a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan Omar Ata Bandial, Justice Qazi Faiz Issa has opposed granting privileges to retired judges through the full court.

Justice Qazi Faiz Issa said that the proposal to provide vehicles to retired judges was inappropriate and shameful.

Qazi Faiz Issa said that the last full court meeting was held on December 12, 2019. Many important issues affecting the delivery of justice need attention from 2019. The registrar of the Supreme Court is looking at public resources instead of these matters. A circular has been sent to the court seeking the approval of the full court to provide vehicles to the retired judges.

“I received this embarrassing proposal on June 1. On the same day, I asked the registrar to state the law or regulation in which the full court has this power. Instead of stopping the illegal work, the registrar is saying that the judges should take their oath. Turn away from, proposing benefits for retired judges is a violation of the judge’s oath.

He said that after retirement, it will directly benefit us judges. The oath of the judges includes that they will abide by the code of conduct. Will use, which would be a violation of the Code of Conduct.

Judge Faiz Issa says the registrar and we judges should know what the requirements of our position are. The registrar has a misconception that he can do anything on behalf of any judge. I disagree with

He further said that former Chief Justice Saqib Nisar had called a full court meeting a few months before his retirement. When several judges, including me, were on leave, when the full court minutes were sent to me for approval, I objected and disagreed.

Justice Faiz Issa raised the question of whether the government whose cases are before the judiciary could ignore the decision of the full court.
