Who is Abdul Hameed Dogar?

Abdul Hameed Dogar is a former justice of Sindh High Court and a former Chief Justice of Pakistan.

Following the Proclamation of Emergency by General Pervez Musharraf as Chief of Army Staff, on November 3, 2007., Justice Dogar took oath on Provisional Constitutional Order and was administered the oath of office of Chief Justice of Pakistan. On July 31, 2009, the Supreme Court of Pakistan, in delivering a decision on Constitution Petitions No. 08 and 09 of 2009, declared that the taking oath on PCO was not legal and held that Justice Dogar was never a Constitutional Chief Justice of Pakistan as the office of the Chief Justice of Pakistan was never vacant by the de jure Chief Justice, hence treated him the de facto Chief Justice of Pakistan by protecting his all administrative, financial acts and any oath made before him in the ordinary course of affairs of the office of the Chief Justice of Pakistan, except the recommendations made by him in respect of appointments and reappointments for the offices of the superior judges.
