Earlier, in a written appeal to the Chief Justice, Junaid’s parents mentioned, “Due to transfer of many judges, delaying tactics of prosecution witnesses, and difficulties finding adequate legal counsel for the defense because of the sensitive nature of the case, our son continues to await justice in a fabricated case.” Additionally, a lawyer linked to Junaid’s case was brutally murdered in his chambers.

 

Upon the final verdict being announced, Junaid’s parents asserted that this was an unfortunate verdict that has less to do with the legal merits of the case 

They basically stated that the decision highlights the sociopolitical environment in which the lower judiciary operates in. They further said, “Could any judge in such circumstances take the risk of doing justice?”
