ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court is currently hearing a case regarding Eighteenth Constitutional Amendment with a 17-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry.
Today the court was told that Head of the Constitutional Reforms Committee Senator Raza Rabbani has decided to appear before the court.
Today the court opened with the arguments of Akram Sheikh Advocate.
Earlier, Attorney General presented the letter from Senator Raza Rabbani, saying he has made up his mind to appear before the court. The AG read out the letter to the court.
On this, the CJ said there is seemingly some miscommunication; if he does not want to come, it is his will albeit he is party to three petitions and he was served notices according to the regulations.
The CJ Chaudhry said Wasim Sajjad told during a hearing that Raza Rabbani wanted to appear before the court of his own accord.
However, the senator’s letter said he was not summoned by the court; hence, he needs not go there.
Raza also wrote that his statement regarding court’s summon to parliamentarians was wrongly attributed to him, adding the effort was made to create misunderstanding in court and the Parliament.
