ISLAMABAD: The commission empowered to probe the May 2 incident in Abbottabad will summon Director General of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) during the upcoming week for questioning, Express 24/7 reported on Thursday.

Chairman of the commission, Justice Javed Iqbal said Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha will brief the commission on the Abbottabad raid. He was speaking to Express 24/7 at a full court reference in the Supreme Court in his honour.

Earlier, General (retired) Nadeem Ahmed, a member of the commission, had said he did not believe that Pakistan’s intelligence services or its military helped shelter Osama bin Laden. Ahmed’s statements immediately drew criticism from commentators who questioned his impartiality and suggested his comments threaten the integrity of the commission.

Justice Javed Iqbal has, however, given his assurance that opinions of commission members will not influence the probe.

Chairperson of the Supreme Court Bar Association, Asma Jahangir has also expressed hope that Justice Javed Iqbal would remain cautious against “elements” trying to hinder the inquiry.

‘Law supreme in democratic system’

Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry says the law is always supreme in a democratic system against exercise of arbitrary capricious authority by any institution or its functionary.

The chief justice, who was addressing the full court reference, said the rule of law ensures stability in the society and helps build an institutional system.

He said that the use of arbitrary power is considered an anathema to the rule of law.

The chief justice emphasized on furnishing of level playing field to all state institutions and their functionaries to perform for the greater good of the masses.
