Aitzaz Exposed – Part I

aitzazI have always maintained that while Zardari was the ‘Snake‘, Aitzaz was ‘Aasteen ka Saanp’ and not to be trusted. Of course I have been proven right over and over again. The first proof for me was his calling off the first Long March unilaterally. Of course some lawyers understood they had been had and demanded he pick a side: Zardari or the Lawyers Movement and when Aitzaz picked Zardari, that should have removed any doubts about his double dealing. But alas! The lawyers continued to be played like a fiddle and were foolish enough to involve him in the second UNSUCCESSFUL (Do we have Nov 2 judiciary? Hell NO!) Long March. See how he slyly managed to get Kurd stuck in middle of no where on the Sindh=Baluchistan border, Munir Malik stuck in Karachi, Justice Tariq stuck in Lahore and Imran Khan blundering by reaching Islamabad — a place both Aitzaz and Sharif brothers knew the march would never reach (Remember, days earlier Nawaz had already announced the justices would be restored before they reached Gujaranwala — the fix was in).

Also Aitzaz’s activities that day should convince anyone with some common sense of the game he played. Remember that day it is reported he was arrested at least THREE times and he managed to ESCAPE EACH TIME (Now if you believe that i have a bridge I’d like to sell you). And the last time he ‘escaped’, in all those road blocks and sea of traffic he managed to catch up to Nawaz’s vehicle and join him (If you think that is just by luck, you better stop reading right here and pick up a book of fairy tales for you’ll find more ‘facts’ you can believe in there). Another interesting thing to note is that he managed to do it so quickly i.e. before Nawaz by-passed the High Court — something really impossible to do knowing where Aitzaz was coming from (he was being ‘held’ at his home just off The Mall on which the High Court stands) and where Nawaz was coming from (down Ferozepur Road and was supposed to join the lawyers at High Court building where all the action was). It certainly would have been natural for both to meet up at the Hig Court building where all the lawyers were waiting for them (I know because I was there) But we already know what happened. Aitzaz and Nawaz gave the lawyers the slip, managed to join up before the GPO and went around the lawyers gathering and started the Long March without the lawyers.

(Note: I found out through a phone call that Nawaz had already gone around the High Court building and was already on his way to ‘Islamabad’ so I left the lawyers there who still insisted Aitzaz and Nawaz were on their way to the High Court. I did catch up with the caravan pretty soon at Data Darbar)

Another thing to keep in mind is that why was Aitzaz being given the main role? Remember he was by this time basically kicked out of the Lawyers Movement, he was no longer the president of the Bar, all the candidates he supported in the election lost. And yet we find him as the decision maker for the lawyers. He was the one being called by Kiyani informing him about the restoration and being asked to tell Nawaz to call off the Long March. And when Nawaz did call it off, It was Aitzaz who made the announcement that the lawyers had agreed to do the same. I ask: under what authority? Of course the lawyers found themselves once again caught with their pants down and a stick of butter stuck up there, too embarrassed to admit they had been had. All they were left with was to repeat Aitzaz’s words. How pathetic!

(Also remember: His ‘ouster’ from the PPP CEC was also a drama and has been rescinded since)

Some other disgusting acts of Aitzaz for the sake of recordkeeping:

Taking CJ to meet with Zardari (Excuse given: BB ki taziat kay liyay)

Taking CJ to US (Excuse given: Award kay liyay)

Taking CJ to meet with Holbrooke, etc. (No excuse given except lies. Holbrooke did expose the denied fact that cases were discussed)

Becoming a lawyer for Haris Steel (Discussed in detail in Aitzaz Exposed – Part II)

      Yeah right! And he is going to achieve that by protecting Zardari and svcking his b@lls! His leadership has just ben exposed by his admitting (but still lying) about his role in the Haris Steel Mill/Bank of Punjab scam. All the lawyers I know see through this and spit on his mere mention — so much for “leadership”. And did he not admit to his acquiring LPG quota (with the sorry excuse “but it is not in my name”)

    PAKISTANI PLIANT/SLAVE JUDICIARY UNDER GENERAL MUSHARRAF’S MARTIAL LAW:

    Human Rights Watch is often quoted on the Restoraion of Judiciary and Restoration of CJ Mr Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary. Lets read what HRW has to say about Asif Ali Zardari. I wonder where was was Mr Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhary [upgraded by Musharraf during Martial Law rather Musharraf administered his OATH for the Supreme Court] and his Chief Spokesman Mr Ather Minallah who had served under the very General Musharraf during his Pure and Un-edited Martial Law Government. Where were Mr Ather Minallah and CJ Mr Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhary when under their very nose below mentioned Human Rights Abuses were rampantly allowed against Makhdoom Javed Hashmi and Asif Ali Zardari.

      Doubt it matters to Aitzaz. He’s busy arguing in CEC today that “NRO ministers must resign BUT NRO president must not!” Go figure!

      (BTW please don’t expect me to feel sorry for AZ. He got a lot less than what he deserved)

      And let’s not forget the behavior of CJ when he found the relatives of Missing Persons near the court. He was ANNOYED he had to see them and demanded they be not allowed near the court….
      Also see Out of sight, out of mind. Justice delayed is indeed justice denied!

      Regarding Athar Minallah, see my comment here

      • 9 Aamir Mughal December 19, 2009 at 7:32 pm

        Dear Nota,

        What I like about you the most is this that you believe in Across the Board Accountability and that is my only point on every forum that if we single out PPP or AZ then they will use it as a Political Tool. Regarding Ather Minallah I have this [I am sure you must be knowing about it:)

        Athar was appointed Minister for Law, Local Government, Parliamentary Affairs and Human Rights by the Provincial Government of NWFP (2000-2002). http://www.asmlaw.com.pk/

        Read the detail rather newspapers of the year 2000 [3 Months after the Martial Law of General Musharraf] and what an irony, the present spokesman for CJ Mr Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry i.e. Athar Minallah was Provincial Minister in NWFP Government in the year 2000 under the very same General Musharraf.

        In January 2000 Chief Executive General Musharraf dictated that all superior court judges swear a new oath under the Provisional Constitutional Order No.1 issued on October 15, 1999, which had suspended the Constitution. In January 2000, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry then a serving judge on the Balochistan High Court (BHC) was one of the first judges to take an oath on the PCO. This allowed him to be elevated to the Supreme Court to fill one of the vacancies left by the 11 judges who had resigned in protest at taking this oath.

        On May 13 2000, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was one of 12 Supreme Court judges who validated the military coup of General Pervez Musharraf. They ruled that the removal of the elected government of Nawaz Sharif was legal on the basis of the “doctrine of necessity”.

        In June 2001, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was one of two judges who visited the Presidency House to convince the then President Rafiq Tarrar to resign, and make way for General Pervez Musharraf to assume that office.

        On April 13 2005, in the “Judgment on 17th Amendment and President’s Uniform Case”, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was one of 5 Supreme Court judges who dismissed all petitions challenging President Musharraf’s consistitutional amendments. In a wide ranging judgement they declared that the Legal Framework Order (LFO) instituted by General Musharraf after his suspension of the constitution, the 17th amendment which gave this constitutional backing, and the two offices bill which allowed Musharraf to retain his military uniform whilst being President were all legal.

        Certainly worth repeating. Let us also not forget:
        — Till the day Ch Iftikhar was removed, he found nothing wrong with Mush
        — After having been reinstated July 20, 2007, it was under him that on September 28, 2007, the Supreme Court cleared the way for President Pervez Musharraf to seek another five-year term, and stand for Presidential elections, when six of the nine judges, rejected a tangle of petitions against him and threw out a major legal challenge to his re-election plans. Presided by Justice Rana Bhagwandas.
        — Let’s not also forget that for the hearings started on October 17 against Musharraf’s eligibility, the bench constituted was in favor of Musharraf. The bench slated to hear Musharraf’s case was a direct result of manipulation by none other than CJ Iftikhar himself. The 11-member bench was carefully constituted/manipulated on October 10 seemingly in full consultations with Sharifuddin Pirzada, to ensure a positive outcome for Musharraf. (I had commented at there (Teeth Maestro): “I am certain SC will succumb and without much pressure. The court saga is just a side show. Yesterday I was amazed to hear Najam Sethi of Daily Times (speaking to Kamran on Geo about BB’s return) saying that people having problem with the NRO were those that suffered from “middle-class morality.”. CJ Iftikhar had also declined to constitute full court of the Supreme Court to hear the constitutional petitions challenging the candidature of Musharraf for re-election using the sorry excuse: “due to non-availability of additional judges.”
        — I also am still disgusted by his meeting with Zardari under the pretense of offering condolences for BB. Of course Aitzaz helped him with that.

        Did I miss something?

        Oh yes I did. Another totally unjust decision is clearing the names of both Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif and sweeping laws under the rug. That certainly was the most disgusting thing this court did. Remember this was AFTER restoration.

        Another thing I forgot to add was the July 2009 decision. I call it a non-decision. The fact that they only went after the PCO judges was very disappointing. What appened a couple of days back should have been a part of that decision. Why did the court not rule against the NRO that day is beyond me.

      • 11 nota December 19, 2009 at 8:49 pm

        Interesting story regarding Aitzaz’s role:
        Justice Wajihuddin is directly blaming not only BB but Aitzaz Ahsan as well of colluding with the government
        A day earlier, there was also this story in Dawn Nov 4 (print-edition) that quoted an unnamed PPP leader accusing BB of being a partner in PCO/Emergency/Nov 3 affair (sorry I can not find the Dawn online link but here is one I found repeating the same: Bhutto ‘taken into confidence’ before imposing emergency )

    Where is CJ and day to day proceedings like NRO on this case, watch the BBC documentary.
