SC receives IHC recommendations over alleged meddling in judicial affairs - UTV Pakistan

A petition has been submitted to the Supreme Court of Pakistan, urging the formation of a full court to address the suo moto case related to a letter from judges of the Islamabad High Court.

The petition was filed by former Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) president Abid Zuberi and a group of other lawyers. The petitioners, which include Abid Zuberi, Shahab Sarki, Shafqat Chohan, Munir Ahmad Kakar, Chaudhry Ishtiaq Ahmad Khan, and Tahir Faraz Abbasi, have requested to be included in the case.

The petition emphasizes that Justice (retd) Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui had also made allegations before the six judges.

It highlights that the decision to establish an inquiry commission was made without a full court meeting or the Supreme Judicial Council, but after a meeting between the chief justice and the country’s administrative head.

The petitioners are advocating for an end to the interference of the administration and secret agencies in judicial matters and are calling for a thorough investigation.

During a recent hearing, a seven-judge larger bench of the Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa, decided to postpone the case until April 29. The chief justice mentioned that the case will be heard daily starting from April 29 and suggested the possibility of forming a full court for the next hearing.
