THIS refers to the headline, ‘AG drops Bombshell in Supreme Court’ (June 27).

Not a day passes when one doesn't read harrowing news of the senseless killing of innocent people, through remote controlled bombs or explosives wrapped around body of misguided suicide bombers.

As if these mad killings were not enough we are told of a "bombshell in Supreme court".

The news report says that a person no less than the retired JusticeYasmin Abbassey and a former law secretary, would stoop so low as to be willing to bluff no less than the Supreme Court first by writing a letter on Nov 5, 2012 for proceeding with the $60 million graft case against the president pending in the Swiss court, ostensibly to show obedience to the Supreme court, and then after 10 days secretly writing another letter not to open the case to save her master, making a joke of the Supreme Court's order.

I do not know how strong the graft case is against the president but I do think this ‘bomb shell’ takes the cake of rank sycophancy amongst those who are paid to uphold and respect the law.

When I find myself in the midst of fear and likehood of being consigned to oblivion by all these Lashker-e-X, Y,and Z for me these power struggles of elites is nothing but a tactic by them to confuse me and the rest of the common citizens here. What this newest AG (don't we all know Munir Malik and his family friendship, nay personal loyalty to the Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaiudhry?) has done is nothing more than providing the Supreme Court & its populist Chief Justice just another oppotunity to thrive in not dispensation of justice but populism.
