SC Registrar Refuses To Entertain Govt’s Petition Against Justice Isa Verdict
Supreme Court (SC) registrar has refused to entertain a review petition filed by the government against the top court’s verdict on the review petitions in the Justice Qazi Faez Isa case.
Returning the government’s application, the office of the registrar objected that the court could not review the same case twice.
In April, the SC had accepted Justice Isa’s review petitions, setting aside its earlier orders to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to hold an inquiry into three UK properties in the name of the judge’s spouse and children.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Law and Justice released a statement, vowing to ‘re-file’ the petition in ‘due course of time’.
“Against the order of the majority in the review petitions of Justice Qazi Faez Isa and others dated [April 26], the Federation of Pakistan on [May 25, 2021] preferred a Curative Review Petition on which certain objections were raised by the Office of the Supreme Court,” the statement read.
