Scarcely a day goes by without some interesting story concerning an interesting case from Pakistsan. It could be a story about Muslims charging Christians with being against their religion because they follow another religion or a girl who was forced into marriage against her will. However, the latest example certainly deserves entry into the weird case Hall of Fame. Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry threw his son out of the house, disowned him, and then decided to be a judge hearing corruption charges against his won boy.
By any standard of justice, how can a father who just threw his own son out of the house be an impartial judge in a court case?? Arsalan Chaurdhry is accused to taking bribes from some rich dude who wanted the son to influence dad’s decision in a case against Mr.Riaz.
Sorry, Chief Justice Chaudhry, there is what we term in judicial language, a “conflict of interest.” How did this man become the “Chief Justice” of anything??
