MEMOGATE: In today’s episode of the Tribune Take, we take a look at the latest from the Memogate proceedings at the Supreme Court of Pakistan in Islamabad.
Faisal Shakeel, reporter The Express Tribune Islamabad, says emotions were running high at the Supreme Court when Chief Justice (CJ) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry questioned former Law Minister Babar Awan’s comments during a press conference December 1, 2011.
Awan had alleged that the court had overstepped its jurisdiction by accepting a petition before the parliamentary committee concluded its investigations in the Memogate scandal.
Shakeel says it is very clear that there seems to be a rift between the judiciary and the executive branch of the government, which has been further highlighted after the court took notice of Awan’s comments.
