Will SC really Rock the Boat; this time?

It seems as Mr. Zee and Gee (President Zardari and PM Gilani) and their cohorts after having served a charge sheet by Supreme Court have finally barred their teeth and are resorting even in orchestrating some kind of wishy-washy resolution in the house. They think it may prop up their falling regime and might avail them some respite. But:

Alas; no one may now push the bitter cup or the awaiting gallows away from them which are—made ready to punish them for their contempt, loot and evil deeds.

Mr. Gee is even heard calling the gathering of the house of the ‘black crows’ that they always gather; no doubt for their personal greed and are likely to join hands to save the falling regime to safeguard their own interests too.

Strange enough the malaise and hypocrisy of Zee and Gee against SC is so glaring that this propping up resolution is being passed on the very day when Supreme Court is due to announce its final verdict against all the six charges since leveled against Zee and Gee.

It’s too late for the Heroes to stop the noose tightening around their necks?

On the other hand it is also felt necessary to point out that hopefully; this time Supreme Court will really rock the boat as so far the SC history speaks that court has shown many a weaknesses in apprehending the culprits. Mark reluctance is observed in passing the true verdict and it looked as noose around the culprits was being kept loose intentionally.

It is also pointed out that “Justice delayed is in fact justice denied” which denotes a legal maxim meaning that if legal redress is available for a party that has suffered some injury, but is not forthcoming in a timely fashion, it is effectively the same as having no redress at all. This principle is the basis for the right to a speedy trial and similar rights which are meant to expedite the legal system, because it is unfair for the injured party to have to sustain the injury with little hope for resolution.

“Justice delayed is justice denied”. This phrase is also a rallying cry who view courts as acting too slowly in resolving legal issues either because the existing system is too complex or overburdened, or because the issue or party in question lacks political favour or under the circumstances, the Court itself feels it insecure for the judges passing the verdict.
