ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar remarked on Monday that when the Supreme Court remarks on something, it is said that ‘our work is being interfered with’.
The chief justice made the comment while hearing a suo motu case on the deforestation in Margalla Hills.
“Those who are responsible to do it fail to do the required work. If you are here to serve the public then do it. But it is said that the judiciary is interfering in the executive’s domain,” the chief justice remarked.
“If we don’t even give directions then what will we leave behind for our children,” Chief Justice Nisar observed.
During the hearing, the chief justice regretted that the country’s capital does not have a set of rules regarding the felling of trees in the Margalla Hills National Park.
As the hearing went under way earlier, the chief justice had summoned Tariq Fazal Chaudhry, an elected representative from Islamabad and state minister for Capital Administration and Development Division.
