ISLAMABAD: Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui of Islamabad High Court on Tuesday recused himself from the bench hearing the appeal challenging the cancellation of Pervez Musharraf’s bail in the judges’ detention case on account of what he called a smear campaign against him on social networking websites.
Justice Siddiqui dissociated himself from the IHC’s divisional bench, comprising himself and Justice Riaz Ahmed Khan, at the start of today’s hearing of the appeal.
The appeal was filed against the rejection of the former military ruler’s post-arrest bail petition by the Anti Terrorism Court (ATC) of Islamabad.
The recusing judge said a campaign was being run against him on social media with regard to the case which was why he could no longer be a member of the bench.
As a result, the bench stood dissolved and the matter of the appeal’s hearing was forwarded to the IHC whose chief judge, Justice Mohammad Anwar Khan Kasi, would decide on the issue tomorrow.
