ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued notice to Attorney General for Pakistan Molvi Anwarul Haq for assistance on a civil miscellaneous application seeking its intervention to stay proceedings of the Judicial Commission, currently given mandate to probe the memo issue.The civil miscellaneous application was filed by Shahid Orakzai.A nine-member special larger bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry issued notice and adjourned the hearing of the case to a date in office.
The same bench also put off hearing of a review plea moved by Hussain Haqqani, former Pakistan ambassador to US, on pending issue of memo, through his counsel Asma Jahangir.
She appeared and stated that she required time to go through a detailed order of the bench over the memo issue.
She said that she had not received the certified copy of the order yet.The bench accepted her request and adjourned hearing till date in office telling her to apprise the Registrar office about fixation of hearing at a date suitable to her.
Shahid Orakzai, in his plea, had maintained that the Inquiry Commission had also issued a notice, besides others, to the petitioner, namely Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and those petitioners who were all from his (Nawaz) party.
Nawaz Sharif is a leader of the second largest party in the National Assembly as well as the leader of the ruling party in the province of Punjab, and unless immediately restrained, the Commission was likely to give a political tint to its proceedings, the applicant claimed.
In his application, the petitioner had also raised some constitutional objections stating that Chief Justice of Balochistan Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Chief Justice of Sindh High Court Justice Mushir Alam were engaged in the judicial commission that was out of territorial jurisdiction of the respective High Courts.
Orakzai had also mentioned to some other provisions regarding the case and to validate the revelations in his petition.
