LAHORE-A three-member Constitutional Review Board of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday extended house-detention of chief Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) Hafiz Saeed and Col (Retd) Nazir Ahmed by further 60 days while releasing two of its leaders Mufti Abdur Rehman and Ameer Hamza. All the four leaders were brought to the LHC amid tight security. The law-enforcement agencies cordoned off the whole LHC building where hundreds of supporters of the banned outfit as well as dozens of heavily armed police remained present till the four left the place. The board comprising Justice Mian Muhammad Najamuz Zaman, Justice Syed Shabbar Raza Rizvi and Justice Fazal-e-Miran Chohan turned down Home Department request to extend detention of Mufti Rehman and Hamza after expressing dissatisfaction over material produced against both the accused. They would be released on Wednesday (today) after the expiry of their detention period. The Board extended the detention order of Hafiz Saeed and Col (Retd) Nazir Ahmed citing security concerns. Earlier in the day the four petitioners were individually sent into private meetings with the Review Board. The Board provided opportunity to all detainees to present their point of view after they were given reasons in black and white that led to their detention. Hafiz Saeed stated that his five-month long detention is illegal and if there is any incriminating material against him the govt must produce it before the board. He was of the view that UN neither ordered nor recommended his detention. Hamza said he was never involved in any anti-State or provocative activities while Col (Retd) Nazir opined that elements who broke country are wandering around freely while its saviours have been put behind the bars. Despite a heavy police presence, security at the court remained lax as police failed to frisk most people entering the premises even when they set-off the metal detectors. JuD supporters raised slogans following the hearing as their leaders were led away into prison vans and taken from the court back to their sub-jails. The board further ordered Punjab govt to provide subsistence allowance of Rs 25,000 per month to the families of 2 detenue while they would be kept at relevant places already declared as sub-jails. Article 10(4) of the Constitution says that the Chief Justice of the High Court concerned forms a board consisting of a Chairman and two other persons, each of whom is or has been a Judge of a High Court. The detention period of all the 4 persons was expiring on Wednesday midnight. In December 2008 Interior Ministry had ordered detention of 8 JuD leaders, including its chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed on the suspicion of organization involvement in Mumbai attacks. The offices of JuD linked to the Mumbai attacks were closed, a day after the outfit was declared a terrorist group by the United Nations. The detenues were once again not allowed to seek the assistance of their lawyers and the board heard them in person. The same board had also extended detention of Hafiz and others for 60 days in March. Meanwhile, Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court on Tuesday formed a three member full bench to hear a habeas corpus petition concerning the house detention of Jamat ud Dawa leaders including its chief Hafiz Saeed. The bench will resume hearing on Wednesday (today). The bench comprises Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry, Justice Hassnat Ahmad Khan and Zubatul Hasan. On Monday Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry had sent the case to CJ for constitution of a large bench following govts point of view that a single judge was not competent to hear petition challenging a three member review board of LHC that had validated Hafiz Saeeds detention.
