Justice Wajihuddin Arrested!

Eye witness accounts report that Honorable Justice Wajihuddin Ahmed, former Chief Justice of High Court has been arrested, while leading a lawyers' protest in Islamabad. As seen earlier during the CJP crisis, when Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was roughed up by law enforcement officials, the police has no shame in manhandling a revered representative of Pakistan's judiciary and mistreating him like a common criminal.


After an announcement by the Ministry of Interior yesterday that there were no restrictions on judges imprisoned in their residences in Islamabad, a group of lawyers decided to meet them to test this assertion.

The lawyers who were accompanied by Justice (retired) Wajihuddin, were prevented from visiting the Judges Colony at a distance by a heavy posse of police. Justice Wajihuddin along with the group were forcibly removed from the area.

Dawn News reports that Senior Advocate Athar Minallah has been arrested and taken to Secretariat Police Station in Islamabad.

I am really amazed by how shamelessly this govt can lie. You can't expect them to tell the truth.
