Chaudhry controversy

His open letter against Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry published on Feb 16, 2007 created a controversy. This helped lead to the eventual dismissal of the Chief Justice by President Pervez Musharraf. The Punjab Bar Council reacted after March 9, 2007, when the controversy had reached a peak and dismissed his membership in Punjab Bar Council. Subsequently, his membership was renewed.

On 9 March 2007, President Musharraf fired Chaudhry. Most of the charges listed against him were contained in a letter written by Bokhari. A copy of the letter was placed before the CJP when he was called to the Army House that day. An office bearer claimed that the letter was written at the government's behest.

Most of the alleged charges against Chaudhry were related to his son Arsalan Iftikhar’s police career while he was a doctor in the Baluchistan government. When the reference against CJP was brought to the Supreme Judicial Council, those in the government who had been facilitating Iftikhar's son were ready to speak against him.

Bokhari’s letter contained the name of Interior Minister Aftab Sherpao, whose ministry had issued orders to treat Arsalan with extra care and then allowing him to get police training along with probationers of the Police Service of Pakistan (PSP Cadre). The letter mentioned that the junior VVIP got special treatment because of his father. Later, Arsalan was appointed to FIA on deputation after seeking the written consent of the Federal Interior Minister; Naeem Bokhari gave details.

Joining PTI

Naeem Bukhari on June 18, 2016 joined the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and formally announced his association the same evening. Speaking on the occasion, Imran Khan thanked the lawyer for joining the PTI and expressed the hope that he would be helpful in party’s struggle against corruption.

Role in Nawaz Sharif's Dismissal

Naeem Bukhari, acting as the lawyer for PTI, helped compile and file a petition against the then PM, Nawaz Sharif, on various charges of corruption, money laundering and using state office and money to run personal business affairs in light of the Panamagate Papers scandal. Nawaz Sharif was however eventually dismissed on account of different evidence suddenly discovered by investigators. Panama related allegations are still being probed and yet to be concluded. Supreme Court of Pakistan verdict of July 28, 2017 is marred by allegations of judges and military establishment conniving to oust Nawaz Sharif. Naeem Bukhari insists on claiming credit for what he says his judicial victory.
