ISLAMABAD (APP) - The judges who are taking fresh oath are virtually justifying the extra-constitutional steps of former president Pervez Musharraf taken on November 3, 2007, Aitzaz Ahsan said Saturday. "Fresh oath amounts to accepting the removal of judges as constitutional step," Supreme Court Bar Association president Ch Aitzaz Ahsan told a news conference here. He said the demand was for restoration of deposed judges and not their re-appointment. "We didn't expect that these deposed judges who also faced 10 months of hardship would take fresh oath," he said. Aitzaz said the judges taking fresh oath should not forget that it was the lawyers' movement that led to Musharraf's resignation, impartial results of February 18 general elections and signing of Murree Declaration by the leaders of two major political parties. He said the members of the Bar Associations from across the country would stage sit-in outside the Parliament House on September 4. The SCBA President said International Jurists Convention was being held from October 9-12 in which many foreign delegates would participate. The inaugural session of the two-day moot would be presided over by deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. On November 15, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry would reach Brussels on the invitation of the European Parliament. He would visit three or four European capitals where Pakistani community would extend him warm reception. The New York Bar Association would confer 'Life Membership Award' on Iftikhar Chaudhry at an impressive ceremony in New York on November 17. The deposed CJ would get 'Medal of Freedom' from 250 year-old Harvard University. He would be third personality to get this medal in the history of Harvard University. "All these achievements are the result of the lawyers' movement", Aitzaz said, adding that a person being recognised and rewarded the world over was neglected at home.
