Pak SC wants action against CJ son, tycoon

Noting that one who gives and accepts bribe goes to hell, Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Thursday wrapped up its suo motu case involving Chief Justice’s son Arsalan Iftikhar and real estate tycoon Malik Riaz Hussain and asked government’s top attorney to take strict legal action.

The case involved alleged payment of Rs 342.5 million by Hussain to Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry’s son.

A two-judge bench comprising Justices Jawwad Khawaja and Khilji Arif Hussain ordered Attorney General Irfan Qadir to proceed according to the law and take action against Hussain, his London-based son-in-law Salman Khan and Arsalan.

The bench disposed of the case after issuing a short order, which said that the three men had the right to a transparent trial.
