The complaint says that the CJP’s present-day conduct has exposed him as lacking most of the qualities of a judge enumerated in Article-II of the Code of Conduct issued by the SJC in 2009. It is because of his failure to show conduct compatible with the requirements of the said Article of the Code of Conduct, and non-compliance to prohibitory provisions of the code that the Peshawar High Court Bar Association in its general body meeting held on 27.03.2018 passed a unanimous resolution with particular reference to his conduct.
