SJC issues notice to Justice Qazi Faez Isa over reference
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) on Thursday issued notice to the Attorney General for hearing of Presidential Reference against Justice Qazi Faez Isa, and some other judges.
The SJC will hear the reference on June 14. The SJC, the only constitutional forum that can examine the conduct of superior court judges and recommend their removal, will hold a hearing of the two references on June 14.
Justice Qazi Faez Isa, a senior Supreme Court judge, earlier approached President Arif Alvi, to provide a copy of reference reportedly filed against him under Article 209 of the constitution.
It was reported that the references accuse the two judges of concealing their assets and recommend action against them under Article 209 of the Constitution.
However, the presidential reference was sent to the Supreme Judicial Council two days ago. The SJC has been requested to initiate proceedings against the judges under Article 209 of the Constitution.
The presidential reference has been filed against the judges over the allegations of hiding their assets. The AGP will appear in the hearing of reference as prosecutor.
Earlier, Justice Qazi Faez Isa, wrote a letter to President Arif Alvi drawing his attention towards reports quoting government sources that a reference had been filed against him under article 209.
“If the news of filing of reference are true, I will be obliged if you (the president) could provide me the copy of the reference filed after your signatures”, Justice Isa said.
He further stated in his letter that selective leaks have become active to defame him, which is affecting my right of ‘fair trial’. “I will be looking forward for your reply in this regard”, he has said.
