In the application filed by the Chief Justice, the Court of Appeal has issued a Writ of Certiorari quashing the proceedings of the Parliamentary Select Committee on the impeachment.
Accordingly, there is no valid, actable finding under the law as pronounced by the Appeal Court on the basis of which a vote can be carried in the legislature to remove the Chief Justice from office.
The position endorsed by the Court is effectively that steps need to be taken to provide by legislation (as opposed to Standing Orders) for the impeachment of Superior Court judges. This means that since draft legislation (a Bill) is reviewable by the Supreme Court as per the Constitution upon being referred by a citizen within 7 days of it being placed on the Order Paper of Parliament for inconsistencies with the Constitution including provisions for the protection of fundamental rights, it would be possible for the citizenry to ensure that any Bill is only enacted into law with provisions that ensure adequate safeguards to ensure the degree of due process needed to ensure judicial independence.
