SC orders inquiry against three Sindh High Court judges over 3-year delay in deciding bail plea

May 27, 2019


A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa approved the pre-arrest bail application of the murder suspect.

The Supreme Court on Monday ordered an inquiry against three Sindh High Court judges who were unable to decide an application for pre-arrest bail filed by a murder suspect despite the passage of three years.

In what was the first case heard by the top court via e-Court, a system based on video-link connectivity, a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa also approved the pre-arrest bail application of suspect Noor Mohammad.

The court was informed during the hearing that a murder case was registered against Mohammad at Shahdadpur police station in 2014. The suspect had subsequently approached the Hyderabad circuit bench of the SHC for his pre-arrest bail in 2016.

Chief Justice Khosa observed that as per the statements of eyewitnesses, the murder was committed by unidentified persons and the suspects nominated in the case were not involved in the killing.

Also, he remarked, the local police "displayed mala fide intent while investigating the case". Justice Khosa noted that two other suspects in the case have already been granted bail.

While granting the bail plea filed by Mohammad, the chief justice ordered the registrar of the Supreme Judicial Council to conduct an inquiry into the delay in deciding the bail application.

Offshore properties: Govt files references against three judges

May 29, 2019

ISLAMABAD: The federal government has filed references with the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) against two judges from the high courts and one of the Supreme Court for having properties abroad but not mentioning them in their wealth statements.

It has been learnt that President Arif Alvi has filed the references with the SJC under Article 209 of the Constitution.

There was no official confirmation from the SJC; however, an official of Ministry of Law and Justice confirmed the filing of references. Sources said these judges had their properties abroad, which were either in their own names or in the name of their spouses.

A judge allegedly owns a property in Spain in the name of his spouse but he has not disclosed it in his wealth statement.

The other two judges of Sindh and Lahore High Courts are alleged to have properties in the United Kingdom.

The Ministry of Law and Justice has drafted these references in coordination with former judges of the Supreme Court and high courts.

The Supreme Judicial Council comprises Chief Justice of Pakistan as Chairman, two most senior judges of the Supreme Court and two most senior judges of the High Courts as members.
