Bul­let-proof se­cu­rity

Southasia - - BRIEFINGS -

The Is­lam­abad High Court di­rected the govern­ment to im­me­di­ately pro­vide a bul­let-proof car to for­mer Chief Jus­tice, Iftikhar Muham­mad Chaudhry. Jus­tice Shaukat Sid­diqui of the Is­lam­abad High Court said the for­mer chief jus­tice should be pro­vided the same se­cu­rity as pro­vided to for­mer prime min­is­ters.

In an ear­lier hear­ing of the case, Jus­tice Sid­diqui had warned that bul­let-proof ve­hi­cles from other govern­ment func­tionar­ies would be taken back if the for­mer CJP was not pro­vided with a bul­let­proof car. He also ob­served that the govern­ment seemed vin­dic­tive to­wards the for­mer CJP by not pro­vid­ing him enough se­cu­rity.
