THE deposed judges of superior judiciary who refused to take oath under the PCO are still waiting for their salaries despite an announcement made by PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari in this context, BBC reported on Tuesday. Talking to the BBC, senior SC judge Sardar Raza Khan said neither any government official contacted him in this respect nor the SC administration received any such instruction. He said the deposed judges were staying in the SC's guesthouse. They are neither paying house rent nor electricity bills. Therefore, they are not facing much expenditure in routine life, he added. He said 11 judges of Supreme Court including CJ Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and more than 40 judges of high courts had not been paid salaries for over six months. Sardar Raza Khan said five judges of SC including Iftikhar Chaudhry, Justice Sardar Raza Khan, Justice Javed Iqbal, Justice Shakir Ullah Jan and Justice Nasirul Mulk are staying in the Judges Colony while the remaining eight deposed judges are living in their respective ancestral areas. Deposed judge Javed Iqbal was appointed as Chairman of the Press Council by the government. However, after PM Gilani ordered release of deposed judges but he (Javed Iqbal) did not attend the office. It is pertinent to mention here that PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari after knowing that the deposed judges were not being paid salaries, had instructed PM Yousaf Raza Gillani pay them salaries from special funds. However, some of the judges declined to accept this, saying special funds are allocated for the poor and deserving people, therefore, they will not get salaries from these funds.
