The Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court (IHC) criticized the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, saying he has no right to humiliate judges in open courts.
The comments came mere days after the Larakana incident and the resignation of the humiliated Larkana sessions judge.
According to Pakistani media outlet Geo News, IHC Chief Justice said if the CJP would not respect judges, the judges too have the right to defend themselves.
