ISLAMABAD - After raising objections over PCO judges pleas, the Supreme Court Registrar Office has, once again, while exercising its special powers, has declined the request of Mohammad Aslam Ghumman Advocate, who has challenged the appointment of Maulvi Anwar-ul-Haq as the Attorney General of Pakistan, and refused to provide copies of contempt of court notice and apology statement of new AG. The Registrar Office through a letter, dated May 18, 2010, said, I am directed to inform you that your request for the issuance of certified copy of the reply submitted by former Justice Maulvi Anwar-ul-Haq filed in contempt proceedings against PCO judges, before the larger bench has been declined on the ground that this document has not been required by the court specifically. Ghumman, a senior lawyer of the Supreme Court, said he would file an appeal before the apex court against the order of the Registrar Office. He said that it was not the job of Registrar to refuse to provide public documents. He said that the administrative staff was now carrying out the judicial responsibilities which was wrong. It is pertinent to mention here that earlier, while arguing the case of the PCO Judges before five-member bench, Dr Basit had objected that the registrar being the administrative post could not carry out the judicial functions. He had said that the Registrar Office had returned his petition with objections twice. After that the apex court also said that Registrar Office was not authorised to raise objections over PCO judges application. A five-member bench of the SC headed by Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk on April 27, 2010 adjourned hearing on a petition filed against the appointment of new AG of Pakistan as the petitioner did not submit contempt of court notice and the apology statement of Justice (Retd) Anwar. Justice Nasir asked the petitioner to submit the document so that the SC could proceed in the matter. The former attorney general resigned on April 2nd, protesting non-cooperation from the Law Ministry over the reopening of Swiss cases against President Zardari. The petitioner said a person who was eligible to become judge of the superior court could be appointed as attorney general of Pakistan, while the Justice (Retd) Anwar had committed contempt of court and had also sought apology from the apex court in this regard.
