A full court reference will be held today (Dec 20) in honour of Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa as he is retiring from his post today. A dinner will also be given in honour of the outgoing Chief Justice of Pakistan.
Justice Gulzar Ahmed who is the most senior judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan will take charge after justice Khosa’s retirement. Justice Khosa –has handed down several key verdicts against political and judicial functionaries during his tenure, inviting the ire of many but projecting the apex court as a strong institution.
During his career as judge of the higher judiciary since 1998, Justice Khosa passed many landmark judgements and noted important judicial observations yet the cases that gave him international fame include disqualification of two sitting prime ministers — Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani and Mian Nawaz Sharif — and most recently extension case of army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa.
