ISLAMABAD – The Ministry of Law clarified today (May 31) that reference was filed against the Justice Qazi Faez Isa on the complaints of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and Asset Recovery Unit (ARU).
In the released statement, Ministry of Law expressed that they are bound to act upon the complaints of FBR and ARU. The impression about the ministry filing the reference against Justice Isa is wrong, said Ministry. “It is wrong and unfair to call us the mastermind of references”, asserted Ministry. Ministry said that they do not even have the mechanism to check the assets of judges.
Ministry of Law said that they had no role in the referencing of Justice Isa. Statement further clarified that the rumors about President revising the harsh language used by Ministry of Law in the reference is totally fake. President neither sent any directive nor was language revised in the reference.
