Published on June 2, 2017 by admin6

ISLAMABAD: In what appears to be a deepening rift between the PML-N government and the judiciary, the former on Thursday issued a statement expressing ‘deep sorrow and regret’ over remarks by a Supreme Court judge painting the government as a ‘Sicilian mafia’.

The government while expressing immense sorrow over the remarks termed it “against judicial traditions and code of ethics of the apex court”.

In a statement, a federal government spokesman said the “honourable judge, without having complete knowledge of the matter, not only levelled baseless allegations against the government, but also termed action taken by the prime minister a reaction to the contempt of court notice issued to Hashmi by the Supreme Court.”
