SC Disposes Off Review Petition Filed by Nawaz In Judge Video Scandal Case

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday disposed off a review petition filed by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in judge video scandal case.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa presided over the petition.

At the outset of the hearing, the top judge remarked that whatever had been pleaded for review in the petition, the apex court had already agreed to that.

There is no room for our interference and intervention [in the case] as the matter stays with the Islamabad High Court, government and the FIA,” CJP Khosa stated.

The CJP remarked that the court considered the matter in accordance with the Law, and gave ruling that the IHC has total independency for judgment on the video scandal case.

“Comments had begun that the Islamabad High Court’s hands were tied […] this is what happens when the comments begin without reading the verdict,” the judge lamented.

The counsel of the former prime minister, Khawaja Haris argued that he had come to the court for some reason.

“Whatever you are asking for, we have already given you,” the CJP responded.

The top judge of SC while wrapping up the petition, remarked that the detail verdict in the case will be pronounced later.
