Timeline To Injustice

It is a well know principle in the justice system that “The Justice Must Not Only Be Done, It Must Also Seen To Be Done”. The decision in the Prime Minister of Pakistan’s case met neither of these criteria. Here are  some facts that support this argument. It clearly shows that the the Prime Minister was convicted before any trial and the whole gimmick was to find a reason to do so. The trail was not fair and not met the basic standard of giving the Right of Appeal to the Defendant in a higher court.  The Supreme Court, which is an Appeal Court, once again exceeded its constitutional limits and became a trial court. The decision appeared to have been already made somewhere else to remove Nawaz Sharif by hook or crook. The following seems to point towards that direction:

  1. Javed Hashmi, ex President of PTI, has repeatedly said that Imran Niazi has been assured by the military that Nawaz Sharif will be removed through a judicial coup. The dharnas were part of the plan.
  2. Subsequently, Imran Khan told Hashmi that that the new Chief Justice, Saqib Nisar, will throw Nawaz Sharif out when he takes over,
  3. A phone call that was made to reporter and appear to have been from the Agencies in connection with some news he published clearly said something to this effect “We will throw him (meaning Nawaz Sharif) out soon”
  4. A call form Khosa (I don’t want to call him a judge) to Imran Niazi to file a case in the Supreme Court and we will take care of Nawaz Sharif. By this action, the Supreme Court became the plaintiff.
  5. The case was filed on the basis photo copies and documents that were previously rejected by the same Supreme Court.
  6. Revelation by the clown Shiekh Rashid that the COAS decided to remove Nawaz Sharif because he wanted to replace him, but could not find another Butt to agree to take over from the current COAS.
  7. The scope of the case was illegally expanded from the offshore companies to other search of other assets. The rule of legal proceedings is that the scope must remain as prayed in the original petition. Any new elements must be through a separate petition
  8. The verdict in April was clearly deceitful, based on frivolous grounds and seemed to have been influenced by Mafia novel and an assumption that rich people make wealth through illegal means.
  9. Public statements from Saqib Nisar that Imran Niazi is a person of exceptional qualities. This set the tone of the case. To me Saqib Nisar lost his claim to be a judge, let alone the Chief Justice of Pakistan after this comment and a derogatory comment against Hindu Community.
  10. Comment from Azmat Saeed that Government is acting like Mafia and that Adiala Jail has a lot of room for new prisoners.
  11. The formation of JIT was illegal, in which members were hand picked and illegally included ISI and MIT members.
  12. JIT was nothing more than a rubber stamp for the establishment and just signed on what was already fake report. The evidence of that was that both the army and the judges complimented them as having done a great and honest job, when they had no business to say so.
  13. The post JIT report trial was clearly biased and ignored the valid arguments presented the defense attorneys. The judges became the plaintiffs and forgot that they were judges and not plaintiffs.
  14. Having acknowledged that Nawaz Sharif is not connected with the offshore companies and that he has not done any corruption, disqualified him on Iqama issue. In doing so they
    • Used the definition of un-drawn salary from a Black Dictionary that doesn’t even exists.
    • They completely over rode the universal law that the local laws take precedence over any other definition or law.
    • The local Income tax law and generally accepted accounting principals contradicted with the argument presented by the judges in their judgement,  I cannot imagine that the Khosa and Company were ignorant of this. It can only be assumed as utterly dishonest.
  15. The Review Petition pointed all these flaws in the judgement, but was ignored.
  16. The monitoring judge and others pressurized NAB to file references against Nawaz Sharif and also file an appeal against the High Court judgement in favor of Nawaz Sharif. The Appeal is time barred under the law.

A lot more have been said on the case and the deceitful way the Panamgate case was conducted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan. It broke constitution, laws of  Pakistan and above all the justice system. By rendering injustice the Supreme Court, once again, have played into the hands of the establishment, brought disgrace to the Country and has proved that Kangaroo Courts operate in Pakistan.
