Supreme Court takes suo moto notice of IHC judges’ letter


The Supreme Court on Monday took suo moto notice of the letter written by the six judges of Islamabad High Court (IHC), just days after the federal government formed a commission to investigate the interference allegations.

In this connection, a seven-member bench headed by Chief Justice Faez Isa will hear the matter on Wednesday, which also comprises Justice Mansoor Ali Shah, Justice Yahya Afridi, Justice Jamal Mandokhail, Justice Athar Minallah, Justice Musarrat Hilali and Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan.

The interesting development comes as the federal cabinet last week approved the formation of an inquiry commission headed by former chief justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani – a respected jurist known for his independent views.
