No doubt his abuse of authority is to criticize the government! It is good to see that there is a lively opposition to the move even among lawyers. No doubt it is dangerous to protest in this way.
Lawyers boycott courts across Pakistan
“Lawyers boycotted court proceedings, clashed with riot police, and burned an image of Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf Monday in a countrywide protest against the ouster of the country’s top judge. The country’s main opposition party also decried the removal of Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry, in a high-profile test of judicial independence in military-dominated Pakistan. Chaudhry, who has a reputation for cracking down on government misdeeds and human rights abuses, was suspended by President Gen. Pervez Musharraf on Friday. The government said Musharraf received complaints against Chaudhry alleging that he had abused his authority, but declined to provide details.” (03/12/07)
