    Pak CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry begins proceedings against his son in graft case


    Pakistan's Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry today initiated suo motu proceedings against his son Arsalan Iftikhar following allegations in the media that he was paid up to Rs 400 million by a real estate tycoon to influence cases in the apex court.

    A three-judge bench led by the Chief Justice began hearing the matter this morning.

    The Pakistani capital had been abuzz with reports of improper links between the Chief Justice's son and Malik Riaz Hussain, the real estate tycoon and one of the country's richest men.

    The apex court took suo moto notice of the issue late last night after several TV news channels reported the alleged links between Iftikhar and Hussain.

    During the proceedings, Attorney General Irfan Qadir objected to the Chief Justice's inclusion in the bench, saying it amounted to conflict of interest.

    The Chief Justice took note of the Attorney General's objection and pledged that anyone, including his son, who affected the dignity of the apex court would not be spared.

    The Chief Justice said if allegations against his son were proved true, he would be punished in accordance with the law.


    The Chief Justice directed the parties involved in the case to produce evidence in the court by tomorrow.

    A statement issued by the Supreme Court said it had taken note of reports on various TV channels about an alleged business deal between Hussain and Iftikhar "with a view to influence the judicial process".

    "It is reported that the said Malik Riaz Hussain paid 300-400 million rupees to Arsalan and also sponsored his foreign visits.

    He has recused himself from the case.

    However, which Judge will go against the CJ, when their Boss is the CJ and he can play mischief if he wants?

    You are such a shameless breed that you Pakistanis can use anything and everything which even goes against you to rant against India, even when every single soul is 'Chor' thief in your lands including your CJ who was well aware of his son's lavish life style he earned because of favours he did to his son's scamester boss.

    If it wasn't the obvious legal jurisprudence driven criticism Chief justice of Pakistan have to do (not some thing gracious of him) of Frontier Core commanders who are involved in genocide of Baluchistan people this scandal might not have been out in public domain at all.

    All of them (including the kaptaan) are swearing by the holy Qura'an that they are innocent and the others are lying. It is indeed a circus out there. I am surprised none of them have been declared Waaji-bull-cutlet fr this blatant disrespect.
