Judical turmoil in Pakistan

Just to summarize all the ongoing tussle between judiciary and Govt. of Pakistan.

President of Pakistan suspended CJ via a presidential reference confronting him for several charges ,the exact detail of which is yet unkown, but include charges like abuse of power and authority. the hearing took place yesterday and the case has been adjourned to 21st march.

the suspension of CJ has provoked protest by lawyers, supported by political parties. CJ objected the composition of Supreme Judicial Council , pointing out that the judges in the SJC do not qualify for the SJC. he demanded re creation of SJC, and an open trial, instead of an in-camera trial.
