ISLAMABAD An unpleasant situation developed in the Supreme Court on Friday when harsh words were exchanged between Advocate Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui and Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday regarding the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court in the case of two former lieutenant colonels. Two lieutenant colonels, Khalid Abbasi and Abdul Ghaffar Babar, who, according to them, were victimised during Musharraf regime on petty issues, approached the Supreme Court through their counsel Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui against their department. The Chief Justice said that the Court had recently decided not to hear cases of the officials of the Armed Forces. Siddiqui requested repeatedly before the Court to hear him before deciding the petition but the bench refused to hear him and dismissed his petition. Justice Ramday asked him, "You don't know how to behave in the Court." Siddiqui replied, "I am behaving just like my lord Justice Ramday." Anther senior advocate of SC, Zafar Ali Shah, mediated and suggested Siddiqui to keep quiet, and sat him down. Senior lawyers and media persons, who were sitting in the courtroom, showed their concern over the unpleasant incident. Three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry told Advocate Shaukat Siddiqui that Court would not hear the cases related to the Armed Forces. Justice Ghulam Rabbani and Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday were the other members of the bench. Siddiqui quoting various judgements including 20th July 2007 judgement of Justice Ramday in Chief Justice restoration case said that Court had powers to announce decision against officials of the Armed Forces for their misconduct. Siddiqui appeared before the bench to plead the case but the Court barred him from further proceeding, saying that it had already been settled that the cases of serving officials of the Armed Forces would not be heard in the Supreme Court. Siddiqui disagreed with the bench and continued his arguments, but the bench did not allow him to proceed further. The Chief Justice asked him to speak with patience. Siddiqui tendered apology and requested that he should be allowed to present his point of view because the Supreme Court took up such matters in the past too. Later Khalid Abbasi and Abdul Ghaffar Babar started protest against the Court's verdict. The Chief Justice directed the police personnel to get them out of the Court. Justice Ramday said that it was due to Siddiqui. Siddiqui again countered the Judge and said that he did not give such instructions to his clients. Justice Ramday asked, "Amend the Constitution and then we will hear cases of the officials of the Armed Forces." It is relevant to mention here that Khalid and Abdul Ghaffar were court-martialled during Musharraf regime. Both the gentlemen were kept in illegal confinement for 21 months.
