Attorney general of Pakistan resigned


The controversial remarks before SC seems the reason 


Attorney General of Pakistan Captain®Anwer Mansoor Khan has announced to resign from his office. He has sent his resignation to president of Pakistan Arif Alvi. AGP Anwer Mansoor landed in trouble after making controversial remarks before a 10 member bench of SC that is hearing the petition of Justice Faiz Isa against a presidential reference filed in Supreme Judicial Council (SJC).
The Pakistan Bar Council demanded his resignation. The PBC declared his remarks contemptuous given before SC bench. 
The Pakistan Bar Council had demanded his resignation over comments regarding Supreme Court judges, for which he had been reprimanded by the court as well.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday had directed Khan to produce evidence supporting his statement or submit a written apology about his controversial statement. The statement itself had been expunged from the court record.
AG Khan had leveled allegations against the bench which irked the full court asking him to withdraw his statement. “Certain statement was made by the attorney general about the bench and it would be appreciative that the material on the basis that he has made statement be placed before the bench,” the court noted down in its order.
“In case, no material was placed before this bench, we expect a written apology from the attorney general for having to touch the matter,” the court further noted in its order. “It is not against one but every member of the bench,” it added.
The SC stopped the media to report the comments and to discuss it on the media.
