Army chief extension case: Pakistan PM Imran Khan reacts to SC order
The country's top court issued a short order today.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan said that today's Supreme Court order in the Army chief's extension case was a 'great disappointment' for mafias within and external enemies.
Khan took to Twitter shortly after the verdict was announced by the country's top court. The three-member bench decided to extend Army chief Bajwa's tenure by six months. He was set to retire on November 29. The Pakistan PM said that the order must be a great disappointment for mafias and enemies who were expecting a clash of institutions.
Today must be a great disappointment to those who expected the country to be destabilised by a clash of institutions. That this did not happen must be of special disappointment to our external enemies & mafias within -- Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) November 28, 2019
Mafias who have stashed their loot abroad and seek to protect this loot by destabilising the country.- Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) November 28, 2019
For the record, 23 yrs ago we were the first Party to advocate an independent Judiciary and Rule of Law. In 2007, PTI was in the forefront of the Movement for Independence of the Judiciary & I was jailed for it.- Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) November 28, 2019
Also, for the record, I have the greatest respect for CJ Khosa, one of the greatest Jurists produced by Pakistan.- Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) November 28, 2019
Khan also lauded Chief Justice Khosa as one of the 'greatest jurists' of Pakistan, adding a reminder that he had fought for an idependent judiciary all his political life and was even jailed for it.
