ISLAMABAD - Islamabad District Bar Association, Islamabad, on Saturday observed a complete strike against unnecessary delay in establishment of the Federal High Court. Lawyers boycotted the proceedings of the courts in protest to press the government to fulfil their demands. Representatives of the District Bar Association stressed that till the establishment of the Federal High Court they would remain restless. They said that the purpose of Saturdays strike was to refresh the memory of government to fulfil its commitment. They warned the government that if their demands were not met within 10 days they would announce a detailed schedule of strikes and protests. Raja Inham Amin, former General Secretary of Islamabad High Court Bar Association, Niazullah Khan Niazi President of Islamabad District Bar Association, senior lawyers and other representatives of the Bar also expressed their concerns in this regard. Riasat Ali Azad, General Secretary of Islamabad District Bar Association, said that Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani had pledged for the establishment of a separate high court in the Capital. He claimed that delay in the establishment of high court was also against the spirit of apex courts verdict. Earlier, the Supreme Court in its verdict had declared the establishment of Islamabad High Court unconstitutional and illegal that was set up under a controversial presidential ordinance during the dictatorial rule of Pervez Musharraf. Riasat said the verdict of Supreme Court compels the government to give constitutional shelter to the Federal High Court. He argued that in its detailed verdict SC wrote, although the establishment of a high court or a federal court for the capital was a desirable act, it was unfortunate that such a step was taken in an unconstitutional and highly objectionable manner. It is pertinent to mention here that after the SC verdict, PPP-led government pledged to table a constitutional package in the Parliament to give the constitutional shelter to the Islamabad High Court.
