Musharraf, Chaudhry And The Principle Of The Rule Of Law

Just put this up on the Kenneth Cole AWEARNESS Blog about Pakistan and the Principle of Law:

"There is a standoff in Pakistan that has been brewing for years over the principle of Law versus the caprice of military rule. The AFP is reporting that around 20,000 Pakistani political activists and lawyers are presently making their way to a scheduled protest, a sit-in, outside the parliament building in Islamabad. The so-called 'Long March,' which over the past few days has traversed miles, is calling for the reinstatement of judges dismissed by President Pervez Musharraf during the past year. Most prominent among those attending the rally is the well-respected Pakistan Chief Justice, Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry, whose ouster by Musharraf last year led to protest marches around the country and the boycotting of the court system. It was a pivotal moment in Pakistani history."
