Staff ReportISLAMABAD: Supreme Court (SC) is currently hearing a reference filed by President Asif Ali Zardari under Article 186 (advisory jurisdiction of Supreme Court) of the Constitution seeking revisiting of the death sentence awarded to former prime minister and PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in 1979, SAMAA reports Thursday.Heading the 11-member SC bench, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry taking strict notice of media talk of former Federal Law Minister Babar Awan yesterday, stressed on the respect for the judiciary.“How can things move forward without respect for the judiciary,’ he noted. Babar Awan said, ‘My conversation has two parts; but, you picked up only the piece of poetry as the subject.’On this occasion, the bench ordered the court crew to put in place the projector and screen to present to the court the portions of Awan’s talk.It should be mentioned here that Babar Awan, talking to media persons yesterday after the hearing of the Bhutto reference case, said it was not the first instance that he was meted out such treatment by the courts.Awan said when he was fighting the case of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, he was presented in the court of Gujranwala Judge Saifullah Buttar as a terrorist to damage BB’s case.Furthermore, he noted when he became the lawyer of Asif Ali Zardari, two cases of robbery and kidnapping were registered against him to damage the case. “Now that I am the lawyer in the Bhutto reference, I want to tell the whole nation that I will continue my fight to get justice for the Quaid-e-Awam,” he added.
