Chief Justice rejects criticism, says SC under no pressure

Supreme Court Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday said all the judges of the apex court are working independently and every judge has the right to express his openion, a day after the top court gave judgment  in a case against Imran Khan and Jahangir Khan Tareen.

Speaking at a ceremony, the chief justice dispelled the notion that the Supreme Court was under pressure and was taking dictation, saying “we make all the decisions in accordance with law�.

“This judiciary is under no pressure,� said he, adding that even those who don’t bother to read verdicts start passing remarks.

He said he was not aware the judgment in Hudaibiya Papers Mills case was due to be announced the same day court was scheduled to give its decision on disqualification case of Imran Khan and Jahangir Khan Tareen.

“Institution of Judiciary is your elder , you should not doubt its integrity. this elder neither has become part on any plan nor will it become so .

“Judges make decision with complete honesty and integrity,� he said adding that the court should not be subjected to abuse and criticism over its judgements .
