ISLAMABAD - An application has been moved in the apex court for initiating contempt of court proceedings against secretary law due to his attempt to reverse the short order of the apex court in appointment of chairman National Accountability Bureau Justice (retd) Deedar Hussain Shah. A three-member bench headed by Justice Javed Iqbal on March 10, 2011 declared the appointment of Justice (retd) Syed Deedar Hussain Shah as chairman National Accountability Bureau as illegal and ultra vires and ordered him to immediately step down from his position. Shahid Orakzai, a petitioner, filed contempt petition under Article 204 because the SC Registrar office on Tuesday had returned his application with objection. The registrar has mentioned that the court had passed judgment and now the appellant could file only review petition on it. He prayed the court to initiate contempt proceedings against the federal secretary of law and take appropriate steps to enforce the short order, adding the petition be placed before the bench that has passed the verdict. The petitioner said that the reappointment by the federation of any person who has been removed from any office under the Constitution or under any law totally negates the constitutional authority of the Supreme Court. He said that the action of the federation amounts to disobeying the order of the court under Article 204(a).
