LAHORE (92 News) – Renowned lawyer Aitzaz Ahsan said that the decision should have earlier been made about the step taken on October 12, 1999.  Reacting to special court verdict of handing death to Pervez Musharraf, he said that the verdict of the high treason case is important. He said that Pervez Musharraf had twice arrested the judges. “However, all accused will have to be held answerable,” he said. Aitzaz Ahsan said that perhaps it was the first judgment in which court did as per demand of the law. “The Doctrine of Necessity is still in vogue. The Supreme Court is also under the law,” he said. He said that the arrest of judges and lawyers is not justified in any case. On December 11, renowned lawyer Aitzaz Ahsan has expressed grief and sorrow over the incident occurred at Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC). He said that there was no justification for attacking the PIC to enhance the difficulties of the patients. “It is evident from today’s incident that had the government taken notice of the previous incidents this serious incident would have not happened,” he said. Aitzaz Ahsan said that today’s incident had made him ashamed. “The black coat belongs to the Quaid-e-Azam and it should be respected,” he said. He said that the issue should be resolved by sitting together. “Fayyaz Chohan should have not gone there. It was responsibility of lawyers to protect the minister,” he said. Aitzaz Ahsan said that he had run the lawyers’ movement for former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry. “We were humiliated, arrested and baton-charged, but we did not take to violence,” he said.
