Web Desk June 12, 2012

The Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has summoned a full court meeting  on June 15 to decide upon a future course of action in lieu of the Dr Arsalan Iftikhar case, Express News reported early Wednesday morning.

Express News correspondent Faisal Shakeel said the CJ had called all the judges of all registries to attend the 3 pm meeting on June 15.

Shakeel said that sources had told him the meeting will review the current situation in light of Dr Arsalan Iftikhar, the son of Chief Justice Chaudhry Iftikhar and what direction should the Supreme Court adopt and what should the CJ do in this particular case.

A suo motu was taken by the chief justice against his son Dr Arsalan Iftikhar and real estate tycoon Malik Riaz, following media reports that Iftikhar had received between Rs300 and Rs400 million from Riaz to influence judicial proceedings. The chief justice had summoned his son to the court, and had later detached himself from the bench.

The man must go----it's as simple as that. The longer he hangs in there and pretends to be doing justice the greater the damage and harm he is doing to the institution. Please, for God sake----GO!

@ET Reader: With his claims Riaz Malik is exposing himself as a perpetrator and should be tried in court for this attempt to buy justice! Setting an example for others and to serve as a case of law for anyone who attempts bribery.
