ISLAMABAD - Justice (Retd) Abdul Hameed Dogar and three judges of Lahore High Court - two dysfunctional and one retired - have decided to challenge the Supreme Court judgement for initiating proceeding against them for starting contempt of court proceedings from February 21. A four-member bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justice Mahmood Akhtar Shahid Siddiqui, Justice Jawwad S Khawaja, Justice Tariq Parvez and Justice Khilji Arif Hussain on February 02, 2011 passed a judgement to proceed against all the PCO judges, except Justice Zafar Iqbal Chaudhary and Justice Khurshid Anwar Bhindar, for committing contempt of court by disobeying 3rd November 2007, order of seven-member bench of the apex court. Justice (Retd) Abdul Hameed Dogar, Justice (Retd) Iftikhar Hussain Chaudhry, former chief justice of Lahore High Court, and eight sitting judges - Justice Sayed Zahid Hussain of the Supreme Court and Justice Khurshid Anwar Bhinder, Justice Hamid Ali Shah, Justice Zafar Iqbal Chaudhry, Justice Hasnat Ahmed Khan, Justice Syed Shabbar Raza Rizvi, Justice Yasmin Abbasey and Justice Jehan Zaib Rahim of different high courts - facing contempt of court charges. The proceeding for contempt of court notice against PCO judges initially started on 10th May, 2010 and since then three judges - Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk, Justice Raja Fayyaz and Justice Said Mohammad Ali - have recused themselves from hearing the PCO judges case. Counsels for Justice (Retd) Abdul Hameed Dogar, Justice (Retd) Iftikhar Hussain Chaudhry, and dysfunctional judges Justice Hasnat Ahmed Khan and Justice Shabbar Raza Rizvi informed The Nation that appeals against the 2nd February, 2011s court order have been drafted and would be filed in the Supreme Court next week. The counsels for the PCO judges stated that most of the grounds they have taken in the appeals were the same, which they pleaded before the four-member bench. Dr. Abdul Basit, counsel for Justice Hasnat and Justice Shahbar Raza Rizvi, said that they have asked the court in the appeal to issue detailed judgement because as they were unable to submit reply on short order. Learned counsel said that the court would be informed in appeal that the perception was prevailing in the public that the apex court had adopted double role as on the one side, it had initiated proceeding against the PCO judges but on the other side the court was silent for starting proceeding against those who had given PCO oath to the judges on November 3, 2007. He said they would also state in the appeal that judges could only be proceeded according to the Article 209 of the Constitution, adding that PCO judges had not violated the Constitution by taking oath under November 3, 2007 PCO.
