Man accused of threatening Justice Isa remanded into FIA’s custody

Justice Isa’s wife files application for FIR against death threats

ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court in Islamabad has remanded a man accused of threatening judges into FIA’s custody for seven days.
Judge Jawad Abbas Hassan heard Agha Iftikharuddin Mirza’s case on Tuesday. He ordered the FIA to conduct the suspect’s medical checkup and submit a report in the court.
The judge asked the FIA what they want to recover from the suspect. The FIA said that they want to ask him about some things and recover somethings too, adding that he runs a web channel called Iqra too.
Mirza’s lawyer, on the other hand, said that he is a good man and a scholar. He suffers from cardiac problems too.
On June 24, the wife of Supreme Court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa has filed an application for an FIR to be registered against a man who has threatened her husband.
Sarina Isa said the man, whom she tentatively identified as Agha Iftikharuddin Mirza, threatened Justice Isa’s life. She enclosed a USB with a video of the threat.
She quoted the man as saying “whoever is caught involved in embezzlement, even if he’s [Justice Qazi] Faez Isa…should be put before a firing squad”. He also called for the public hanging of “people like this” and said the whole city should be called to watch it. “Call them to Fawara Chowk to see that such and such man is being shot,” he said in the video.
Sarina Isa said she found his name via an internet search but did not know if it was his real name. She asked the police to look into this further.
“As you must know, many powerful people are not happy with my husband and I suspect that this death threat to my husband is in continuation of what we have been facing,” she wrote.
Justice Isa became the centre of a Supreme Court trial after a presidential reference was filed against him for concealing the assets of his wife and adult children. He has argued that they were not his dependents and therefore he had no need to declare their assets.
