Pakistan: President Arif Alvi sacks high court judge

In Pakistan, President Arif Alvi sacked a high court judge today after a high-level constitutional body recommended his removal for making a scathing speech against the country's powerful spy agency ISI. 

The Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) had recommended to remove Islamabad High Court (IHC) Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui, who was facing a case of alleged misconduct over his controversial speech targeting the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

Justice Siddiqui while addressing the Rawalpindi District Bar Association on July 21 had alleged that the ISI was manipulating judicial proceedings to constitute panel of judges to get favourable decisions.

The army had asked the chief justice of Pakistan to take the notice of the remarks after IHC chief justice Anwar Kansi rejected the allegations against Siddique. The matter was referred to the SJC. After hearing the case, the SJC issued its decision, asking Prime Minister Imran Khan to remove Siddique as his conduct was unbecoming of a judge.
