Musharraf regime decides to shift Justice Chaudhry out of IslamabadNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:23 am ICT by admin
Sources said that the sacked Chief Justice was informed on Friday that he would be shifted to Quetta in next few days, even if he resisted the move.
Justice Chaudhry was likely to be shifted in next two- three days, they added.
Later, Justice Chaudhry succeeded in informing his well- wishes about the plans of the Musharraf regime to shift him.
Sources quoted Justice Chaudhry as saying that: “I can sacrifice and go to any extent for the country, I will stand with the lawyers and their struggle and the people of this country for a truly democratic society under the rule of law and supremacy of constitution.”
His seven-year-old son Balaj, a special child, is sick for the last three days and needs medical attention.
A senior police official claimed that the government allowed the sacked judges to offer Friday prayers at a mosque in Sindh House, but no one came out of their residences.
The decision was taken as Justice Chaudhry’s occasional press statements have boosted the morale of lawyers and gave new life to their struggle against the imposition of emergency and targeting of judiciary.
Besides Justice Chaudhry also succeeded in conveying his messages to lawyers’ community and citizens of Pakistan.
The main reason for shifting of Justice Chaudhry was his last one-minute address to the lawyers on telephone from his besieged house on Tuesday.
In the address, he urged the nation to launch a struggle for the restoration of the Constitution, which he said, had been ripped, to shreds.
Before his cell phone was jammed, he said the time for sacrifices had come, hoping that the day would come when there would be supremacy of the constitution without any dictatorship. (ANI)
