ISLAMABAD During the course of hearing on two petitions filed by Justice (Retd) Abdul Hameed Dogar, challenging the July 31 verdict of Supreme Court of Pakistan, his counsel Naeem Bokhari Advocate once again sought the permission of the apex court to challenge the status of incumbent Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry. Briefing media persons about the hearing of the case held in chamber of Justice Ghulam Rabbani, who reserved verdict for Wednesday (today) Naeem Bokhari said that he not only finished his arguments but again sought courts permission to challenge the status of Chief Justice and four other judges of the apex court. If Nadeem Advocate, who was a party in PCO judges case, was allowed to challenge the status of his client (Dogar) why not his client be allowed to do the same, the learned council explained. Justice (Retd) Dogar filed two petitions on November 5 in the apex court seeking reversal of its 31 July ruling declaring his incumbency as Chief Justice of Pakistan unconstitutional. He also challenged the incumbency of his successor. Bokhari was arguing for his clients miscellaneous applications being heard in the chamber of Justice Ghulam Rabbani here on Tuesday. We have already challenged the restoration of Chief Justice of Pakistan and Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday, Justice Ijaz, Justice Javid Iqbal and Justice Fiaz in the apex court so they cannot hear our appeals, another lawyer Afzal Siddiqui said during the proceedings in the chamber. Recalling the case of Asad Ali in which status of the then sitting Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah in 1998 was challenged and Al Jihad Trust (Judges) case of 1996, he justified that his client had been declared 91 times an intruder in judgment of PCO judges case. The apex courts detailed judgment said that Justice (Retd) Dogar never remained as Chief Justice of Pakistan, he further added. Bokhari along with Afzal Saddiqui Advocate also justified the objections raised by Registrar of the apex court. They also argued that the apex court should also issue notice to his client, as former president Pervez Musharraf was being served notice on imposition of emergency on 2 November 2007. Putting his arguments in favour of his client, Bokhari said that his client had removed the objections raised by the Registrar, Dr Faqir Hussain. The petitioner has no locus-standi to file the petition in the apex court. Petitioner does not disclose a question of public importance, the learned council counted objections. The learned lawyer also said the applicant has removed all the clerical errors right now. So far as the scandalous language of the petitions was concerned it was the job of the honourable judges to take notice of this particular matter, he said adding that it was not the job of Registrar to object at the matter. It is the prerogative of honourable court to decide about the petitions or whether the petitioner had locus standi or not to file a writ petition, he added. He was justifying the matter in light of 31 July judgment in response to two civil petition 08 filed by Sindh High Court Bar Association and second civil petition 09 filed by Nadeem Advocate. Earlier, Justice Ghulam Rabbani reserved the judgment till today (Wednesday). It is also pertinent to mention here that Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry was restored to the present top judicial position through an executive order and (is), therefore, illegal, as a notification cannot override a Supreme Court verdict, Dogar said in one of his petitions. Registrar of the court returned back the petitions raising various objections on the applications.
