No illegal appointments made at Supreme Appellate Court: Registrar

PT Report

Gilgit, January 13: A press note, dated January 13, 2011, shared with media by the Registrar of Supreme Appellate Court Gilgit – Baltistan maintains that no illegal recruitments have been made, contrary to allegations made in some news reports.

Discussing the issue of appointments of new staff, the press note states that after shifting to new premise of the highest court, at Judicial Complex Jutial, there was a need for induction of new Garde 1 – 7 staff members. It is the prerogative of the supreme judicial authority to make such appointments on need basis, without advertisement or other process, it reads.

The note, however, also states that the appointments are contractual in nature and they can be cancelled, if and when the court deems necessary.

The SAC has also expressed displeasure at the reports in some newspapers that blamed the Court of making illegal appointments. “This is sad that a few person with ulterior motive personal interest without any justification have tried to make the appointment as public issue in the newspaper involving the person of Chief Judge for their personal reason”, the signed note states.

The statement goes on to reject the High Court Bar’s protest, saying that neither the High Court nor the Bar Association has the “right to comment on the internal affairs of Court. The statement also mentions that “the Supreme Appellate Court Bar Association being apex body of lawyers of Gilgit-Baltistan has not raised any objection”, with regards to the issue.

It is pertinent to note that some news reports and statements in certain newspapers had accused the outgoing Chief Judge of the Supreme Appellate Court (SAC) of making 20 illegal appointments, “to reward his cronies and favourites”.

The retiring Judge, Justice Nawaz Abbasi, retired today (Jan 14) from his office.

  1. WELL, THE CONTENTS OF THE REGISTRAR OF THE SUPREME APPELLATE COURT IS BASED ON MALAFIDE, HENCE DENIED. IN FACT THE ILLEGAL APPOINTMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE APEX COURT WITHOUT TOUCHING TO THE MERIT AND INVITING APPLICATION FROM THE PROESSIONALS SPECIALLY WHEN ONE APPOINTMENT OF ADL REGISTRAR HAS BEEN TAKEN PLACE RECENTLY WHICH IS EVIDENT TO PROVE THE MAL PRACTICES.

    THE PERSON SO APPOINTED IS AN ARCHAIC BUREAUCRAT WHO HAS BEEN RETIRED RECENTLY BUT QUICKLY GOT HIS SEAT BYPASSING ALL NORMS OF MERIT, ALTHOUGH THERE IS CLEAR JUDGMENT PASSED BY THE SUPREME COURT THAT NO RETIRE PERSON SHALL BE RE HIRED OR REAPPOINTED IN ANY WAY.

    BUT IN GB WHO IS GOING TO CHECK, ALL IS GOOD, BY THE SO CALLED BUREAUCRATS WHO HAVE BEEN THERE THROUGH BACK DOORS AND NEPOTISM.

    THE SCRIBE IS A HIGHLY QUALIFIED PERSON HAVING DOUBLE MASTER DEGEES IN LAW AS WELL i.e. M.A. LLM AND ELIGIBLE FOR ANY HIGH POST IN G B AND VIRTUALLY HAS APPLIED FOR THE POSITION OF JUDGE IN THE CHIEF COURT GILGIT BALTISTAN, BUT IT IS WITH GREAT PAIN AND AGONY TO POINT OUT THAT HE HAS NOT BEEN CONSIDERED FOR ANY POSITION, BECAUSE OF HIS STRAIGHT FORWARDNESS AND DISBELIEVE IN BRIBERY.

    THE PRESENT APPOINTMENT OF ADL REGISTRAR IS MADE ON THE MERE REASON THAT THERE IS NO SUCH CANDIDATE AVAILABLE TO FILL UP THESE POSITION. IN FACT IT IS QUITE WRONG.

    THE SAID PERSON IS SIMPLY B.A.LLB AND THE SCRIBE IS M.A.LLM AND HAVING MORE THAT 17 YEARS STANDING AT THE HIGH COURT BAR THUS QUALIFIED TO BE JUST OF HIGH COURT, BUT THE AUTHORITIES CONCERN HAVE BYPASSED AND KILLED THE MERIT AS WELL.

    THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF SUPREME APPELLATE COURT SHOULD TAKE A NOTE OF THIS AND INVESTIGATE THE ISSUE AND SHOULD NOTE SUO MOTO ACTION ACCORDINGLY.
