Dismissing the request of two senior journalists whose names appeared in the list, Justice Jawwad S. Khawaja said the judiciary had no personal benefits in making the list public. He said that it was the demand of the media to issue that list and now the same media is molding the facts.
“You can blame us, but we are not answerable to you. We are not holy cows and healthy criticism is good for all but sometimes critics cross their limits,” he observed.
Senior journalist Hamid Mir informed the court that money was also swept away from the Special Publicity Funds. Justice Jawwad affirmed that the court will welcome everyone to come forward. He said that nothing should be kept hidden from the public because it involves the public exchequer.
