CJP Isa-led bench to hear Faizabad sit-in review case on Sept 28

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa on Thursday fixed Faizabad sit-in review case for hearing.

According to a cause list issued by the registrar office, Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa will lead the three member apex court bench. The other members include Justice Aminuddin Khan and Justice Athar Minallah.

The apex court will hear the case on Sept 28.

A review petition was filed by the then Interior Ministry against the CJP verdict on April 15, 2019 whereas Pakistan Bar Council also pleaded to fix the case for hearing.

CJP Isa had to face a presidential reference after his verdict in Faizabad sit-in case.

On February 6, 2019, the apex court had ordered action against extremist elements in a suo-moto case pertaining to Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan’s (TLP) Faizabad sit-in.

The TLP had held a weeks-long protest at Islamabad’s Faizabad Interchange in November 2017 against a little change in the oath of lawmakers. The court had taken suo motu notice soon after the protests.
