Fawad declines Asma Jahangir Conference invite as it ‘mocked’ Constitution


ISLAMABAD: Federal information minister Fawad Chaudhry said Sunday he recieved an invitation to the Asma Jahangir Conference which he turned down after knowing a criminal and an absconder will address it, ARY News reported.

Obviously it is equivalent to mocking our laws and the Constitution by inviting over an absconder to deliver closing remarks in a session where honorable judges and senior lawyers are present, Chaudhry said in a number of tweets today.

He added that he had to excuse himself from attending this.

In another tweet, Chaudhry said explicitly that concluding the the session with a speech by an absconder is contempt of judges and judiciary.

He said he has advised the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) to keep their biases in check so they “can contribute”.

He repeated that a conference “addressed by CJP and senior Judges is concluding with speech by an absconder it’s nothing but a contempt of Judges and Judiciary”. He referred to the speech by Ali Ahmad Kurd.
