IHC dismisses judge’s petition in bribe case

IHC dismisses judge’s petition in bribe case

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) dismissed the petition of additional district & sessions judge (ADSJ) Pervezul Qadir Memon saying that he admitted receipt of illegal gratification to the tune of Rs5 million for acquitting Axact officials.

Reserved on June 16, IHC Justice Aamer Farooq announced the decision on Monday while declaring the petition non-maintainable on the ground that the petitioner still got a remedy available with him to file a departmental representation. Further, show-cause notice cannot be assailed before a court, IHC order says.

As per details, an IHC Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) comprising Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui and Jusitce Mohsin Akhtar Kayani observed, “Memon is reportedly involved in corrupt practice in the case of ‘Axact’ decided by him and also in some other matters related to land grabbers etc and these issues require further consideration.”

According to IHC show-cause notice, Memon admitted receiving Rs5 million as illegal gratification for acquitting the Axact fake degree scandal accused, Shoaib Ahmad Shaikh, and 26 other accomplices. 

The petitioner, Pervezul Qadir Memon, through his petition however denied the allegations and said that he never admitted the same.
