Staff ReportISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) said the judges do not deliver verdicts in fury, SAMAA reports Tuesday.Heading a seven-strong bench hearing the contempt case against Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani, Justice Nasirul Mulk directed Barrister Aiteza Ahsan to complete his arguments on Article-10A of the Constitution. Replying to this, Ahsan said the arguments cannot be completed today, as he has a lot to say, adding he needs more time as he has yet to elaborate on evidences too.I will try to complete arguments by tomorrow, he added noting he will not refer to any such rulings that may mislead the court and waste its time.The PM’s counsel said the courts have been referring the matter to the Parliament if they found any flaw in the law, adding the apex court sent Eighteenth Amendment case to the Parliament resulting in the 19th Amendment. Aitezaz Ahsan said the court may issue an order to bring contempt law in conformity with Article-10A of the Constitution, pleading the court to issue an order to stop the bench which took suo motu contempt notice, from taking forward the proceedings against PM Gilani.Justice Sarmad Jalal Usmani remarked that the court always takes suo motu action for the implementation of its own order.Aitezaz Ahsan said this action takes place on the basis of complaint, reading a piece of Bahadur Shah Zafar’s verse—Jisy taish mein khauf-e-khuda na raha (i.e. One who lost control and had no fear of God in fury).Justice Gulzar remarked that the judges do not pass verdicts in anger.Talking to media before the hearing, Aitezaz Ahsan said no apology will be given in this case, as the court order was not defied. He furthermore said if the court convicts the PM Gilani and punishes him, the sentence will be implemented the way the apex court wants it. SAMAAPlease click ‘Video’ button to watch this news.
