Islamabad (TP) May 29: Supreme Court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa on Wednesday sought a copy of the reference from President Arif Alvi after it came to the fore that the president has filed a reference against him and other judges of higher courts, accusing them of possessing assets abroad and for the alleged misconduct.

Justice Isa, who is considered to be a bold and an independent judge, has asked the president to provide him the copy so that he could better prepare himself for a better trial before the Supreme Judicial Council, the highest body to hear references of misconduct against judges of the Supreme Court and high courts.

Meanwhile, Additional Attorney General Zahid F Ibrahim has tendered his resignation in protest after the president filed references against Justice Isa and other judges of the higher courts stating that such references were an attempt to tar the reputation of judges who are independent and also an attempt tp browbeat the judiciary at large.
