Justice Qazi Faez Isa requests SC bench for early decision on review

ISLAMABAD, (MANEND NEWS): Justice Qazi Faez Isa appeared on
Monday before the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC), which is hearing a
review petition against the June 19 order in which the apex court
quashed a presidential reference filed against the SC judge.
During the proceedings, headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial, the apex
court judge asked the bench to decide his case soon as one member of
the bench, Justice Manzoor Ahmad Malik, was retiring next month.
Justice Isa also informed the court that his counsel, Muneer Ahmed
Malik, could not appear as he was unwell.
“This case is extremely important as it’s about the accountability of
judges and transparency regarding judges conduct,” Justice Isa said
adding that the whole nation eyes were on this case. It’s not because

The apex bench issued a notice to Attorney General of Pakistan Khalid
Jawed Khan and adjourned the hearing till today (Tuesday).
The apex court also sought written reasoning from Justice Isa’s
attorney regarding his inability to argue the case.

perception, it is submitted that all future proceedings in the

petitioner’s case may graciously be directed to be broadcast live,

“Broadcasting and/or live streaming of court proceedings would be an
affirmation of the Fundamental and constitutional rights of the
petitioner and of the public. This would also be a testament to
accountability and transparency, which in the present case must
ruthlessly be pursued,” the application adds.
He requested the Supreme Court to direct the state-owned Pakistan
