Islamabad (Web Desk): The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Saturday issued detailed judgement in a case pertaining to review petitions filed by Justice Qazi Faez Isa against the verdict on presidential reference against him.

The 45-page judgement was authored by Justice Maqbool Baqir, Justice Mazhar Alam, Justice Aminuddin and Justice Sajjad Ali Shah and an additional note was penned by Justice Yahya Afridi.

“This judgment must announce loud and clear that no one, including a Judge of the highest court in the land, is above the law. At the same time, no one, including a Judge of the highest court in the land, can be denied his right to be dealt with in accordance with law,” the judges remarked at the start of the verdict.

The ruling said Justice Isa couldn’t be held responsible for the deeds of his spouse or children. “Needless to remind the salutary principle of law that everybody is responsible for his own deeds or misdeeds, acts and omissions, and nobody incurs any liability on account of any wrong committed by any other person.”
