CJP calls Rawalpindi commissioner’s allegation ‘baseless’


Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa has said that hurling “baseless allegations” without any truth or evidence to back them up “do not hold any weightage”.

The chief justice’s remarks came hours after Rawalpindi Commissioner Liaquat Ali Chatha claimed that the chief election commissioner and the chief justice were “also completely involved” in alleged election rigging.

In a casual interaction with media personnel in Islamabad today, the CJP said: “Someone can blame me for theft or murder tomorrow. If hurling allegations is your right, give me evidence along with it too.”
