Pak Supreme Court dismisses PCO judges case objections

By One India

Islamabad, Dec. 13 (ANI): Pakistan's Supreme Court on Monday continued the hearing of a case regarding contempt of court notices to PCO judges, a day after dismissing further objections filed against the bench hearing it.

According to Geo News, Justice M.A. Shahid Siddiqui, who is heading the four-member bench, said the matter relating PCO judges is not personal in nature' but relates to the sanctity of an institution.

The apex court bench heard contempt charges against former Chief Justice Hamid Dogar and other judges for taking oath under the PCO in defiance of a restraining order issued by a seven-judge bench on November 3, 2007.

On Saturday, Dogar challenged the presence of two judges on the Supreme Court bench constituted to hear contempt charges against him and other superior court judges. He said the two judges had been appointed on his recommendation.

The four-strong SC bench comprises Justice Mahmood Akhtar Shahid Siddiqui, Justice Jawwad S. Khwaja, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Tariq Parvez. (ANI)
