According to details, Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui of the IHC heard a petition filed with respect to casualties due to US drone strikes in Pakistan’s tribal areas.
The court inquired the Chief of Capital Police IG Tahir Alam about the non-implementation of court orders to register a case against CIA’s former country director, despite an entire year has passed.
To which, the IG replied that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is also a party to the case and if a case is registered against CIA’s former country director then it is feared to sour the Pak-US diplomatic ties.
Listening to this, Justice Siddiqui said that the court acts according to the constitution and the law, and if there takes place any illegal act then the court is supposed to take an action.
He lamented that it seems as if the Capital Police consider the court orders a mere piece of paper.
Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui ordered for the registration of a case against CIA’s ex-station chief in Pakistan within 24 hours and to submit its report in the Registrar Office.
