SC moved to hear a suo moto case in full court based on a judges’ letter.

In order to hear a case on the Islamabad High Court justices’ letter suo moto, a petition has been filed with the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

Along with four other attorneys, Abid Zuberi, a former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), submitted the petition.

In an appeal to the supreme court, Abid Zuberi, Shahab Sarki, Shafqat Chohan, Munir Ahmad Kakar, Chaudhry Ishtiaq Ahmad Khan, and Tahir Faraz Abbasi have begged to be included as parties to the case.

Additionally, the petitioners claimed that Justice (retd) Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui had made accusations in front of the six judges.

The petition claimed that the decision to establish the inquiry committee was made following a meeting between the nation’s administrative chief and chief justice, not by the Supreme Judicial Council or the entire court.

Petitioners demanded an end to government intervention and interference in matters pertaining to the courts, as well as the activities of secret agencies. A detailed inquiry was deemed necessary, they stated.

Judge Qazi Faez Isa, the Chief Justice of Pakistan, presides over a seven-judge Supreme Court of Pakistan panel that heard a case involving six IHC justices who had sent a letter accusing the court of interfering in internal affairs.

The hearing on the matter was postponed until April 29 by the chief justice. He declared that starting on April 29, the matter would be heard day by day. Additionally, he stated that the next time around, the entire court might be assembled.
