Implementation of law, not the law is real matter: SC
The Supreme Court has remarked “the real matter is implementation of law and not law and if all the verdicts pronounced by the court had been implemented the country would not have faced the problems.
These remarks were given by Justice Azmat Saeed during the course of hearing of FATA regulations case by a 3-member bench of SC hear Wednesday. Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Chaudhry presided over the bench. Ghulam Nabi advocate counsel for the petitioner Professor Ibrahim appeared in the court and took the plea that government worsened the law and order situation by issuing visas to blackwater. No amount of responsibility in this respect rests with some one else on this count. Drone attacks are being conducted daily and innocent people are being killed in these strikes. On the other hand government remains unmoved. Court should discharge its obligations, he prayed.
if professor Ibrahim takes responsibility that peace will prevail there if detention centers are closed down. Prove it through the arguments that the law has been misused.
“We are not hearing drone strikes case. Therefore, we had not sought pictures and list of those who were killed in drone attacks. We have no case of bombing with us nor the law allows shelling. Only peace is being disrupted by writing books. Court can not take the powers and responsibilities of executive. National institutions should be respected. If you have any reservations with regard to FATA and want to file some documents with respect to it then the court can allow some time to do so”, he further remarked.
CJP further observed “army is there in FATA under some specific circumstances. However it is not taking any action beyond law. The army personnel have also been attacked upon and many among them have been martyred and injured. You have seen this in the report”.
