Above The Law: Two Examples

Proving he deserved his “Sitara-e-Imtiaz”, we are told our distinguished Law Minister Babar Awan is so blatantly violating the laws and rules of government business that his own senior ministry officials have protested in writing.

Another — somewhat hilarious — example comes to us from Punjab where the Punjab Government lawyer arguing the case against illegal construction in a public park by the previous Punjab government, argued the current  Punjab government be allowed to carry out construction in the very same park. Simply amazing! I am glad the absurdity of it was not lost on the judges:

The bench asked the counsel to take a clear stand on the issue, making it clear if the construction on the ground by the previous government was legal or not. The bench observed if the illegal constructions by private persons could be demolished why the government illegal construction would not meet the same fate.
