ISLAMABAD " Proceedings in the Supreme Court during the hearing of Sharif brothers' eligibility case on Thursday were again marred by exchange of harsh words between the bench and bar. Pro-Sharifs lawyers exchanged harsh words with the three-member bench headed by Justice Moosa K Leghari of apex court, which is seized with the hearing of appeals arising out of a Lahore High Court ruling of June last year that disqualified Sharifs from holding a public office and asked the Election Commission to review the eligibility of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif through a fresh election tribunal. However, counsels for proposer and seconder of former Premier and PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif have refused to proceed with their arguments on the merits of appeals while raising a demand for constitution of a fresh bench comprising those judges of the apex court who had not taken oath under PCO after the controversial events of November 3, 2007, to decide the matter. Both A K Dogar and Akram Sheikh, who are contesting the legal battle on behalf of proposer and seconder of Sharif, have also expressed distrust over the present composition of bench that also comprises Justice Sakhi Hussain Bukhari and Justice Sheikh Hakim Ali besides the Chief Judge of the bench. During the start of the hearing yesterday in a tension packed room, proceedings took an ugly turn when the bench asked A K Dogar to complete his arguments by 11 am. One of the judges, Justice Sheikh Hakim Ali and A K Dogar exchanged hot words when the counsel objected to the observation and stated that the bench could not bind him in time limits as the petition for a larger bench involved question of a very important nature. "You have already called the judges dishonest, incompetent and biased and we heard you with restraint and patience. What more will we hear from you after 11 a.m ", Justice Ali asked Dogar while observing that the counsel was trying to sow differences between members of the bench. "Your observation is not correct. Parliamentarians had refused to take oath on amended constitution. I will quit the court if you don't want to hear me more", A K Dogar told the bench in a harsh tone. "What are you talking about? We have been hearing you for the past five days, if you talk like this then we will take action to restrict you", Justice Sheikh Hakim Ali told Dogar. The bench also expressed displeasure over remarks of Dogar regarding the impartiality and competence of judges. Justice Moosa K Leghari also asked the counsel as to who would constitute the demanded appropriate bench if the request is allowed as A K Dogar has even called the Chief Justice of Pakistan as "disqualified" for taking oath under PCO. A K Dogar replied that he had submitted his arguments on the application for appropriate bench and now it's up to the bench to decide on the plea. Earlier, Dogar also contradicted a court ruling in which it said on Wednesday that all members of Parliament and judges of superior courts had taken oath under the Constitution amended by dictator. When the court asked Akram Sheikh to proceed with his arguments on the case, the counsel refused to argue on the ground that the facts of appeals will be discussed only after the plea for appropriate bench will be decided. At this stage, Ahmed Raza Kasuri started his arguments on the plea for appropriate bench and opposed the request. Kasuri, who is appearing before the court on behalf of an objector to eligibility of Nawaz Sharif, also accused media of harping on the tune of pro- Sharif lawyers without going into the merits of the case and the law. Reporters present in the apex court for coverage of the case objected to the remarks of Kasuri and lodged protest with the bench. Acknowledging the protest, Justice Moosa K. Leghari expunged Kasuri's remarks about media and lauded the role of media over all the national issues. Kasuri was still on his legs when the apex court adjourned the hearing of Sharif brothers' eligibility case till Tuesday, Jan 27. "We have raised objection that the judges that they have taken oath under a constitution framed by a dictator rather than the Constitution of Pakistan. This is very obvious that judges are not ready to hear these facts", Dogar told reporters outside the court after the hearing. Akram Sheikh on the occasion said that the counsels had reminded judges that a common man can be pardoned for his mistake but a judge cannot be granted pardon for any mistake.
