Pakistan’s Islamabad High Court has issued a notice to drivers for overtaking judges and officials of the High Court.
The officers/officials were returning back from Haripur after offering a funeral prayer of the mother-in-law of the Chief justice of Islamabad High Court.
On the way back, some escort vehicles of the protocol overtook the administrative judge with a loud horn, the notice brings to light.
“This act” according to the notice of the High Court is “against the decorum and protocol,” adding that it caused “inconvenience” to the judge which “warrants strict disciplinary action”.
The notice asks the respondents for an explanation within 3 days after which it will be “presumed” that they did not have anything to say in their defense.
The Explanation has, however, been withdrawn 3 days after the issue.
In recent times, the general public expressed their frustration with the country’s judiciary by putting up the demand for an end to the free fuel quota of the elite class including judges.
