Summary

Senior lawyers said that there is a chance that the court may rule that a similar number of judges bench (seven members) should hear the review petition against the June 19, 2020 order. Two days later, Justice Isa expressed “shock” over the release of that order – barring him from hearing cases against PM Imran Khan – to the media before being shared with him and sought explanation from the Supreme Court’s registrar. Earlier, the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) contended that if a bench – not including dissenting judges – heard the review petitions in Justice Isa’s case, then such adjudication would give rise to a perception that the dissident judicial voices are being silenced. Transparency and impartiality occupy a central place in the adjudicative arena,” SCBA President Lateef Afridi said in his written arguments submitted to the Supreme Court in this case. A number of petitioners challenged a split order delivered by a 10-judge Supreme Court bench on June 19 on petitions filed against a presidential reference that sought Justice Isa’s removal due to his failure to mention his family members’ foreign properties in his wealth statement.
