ISLAMABAD: Federal Law Minister Farogh Naseem is expected to represent the petition filed by the federal government to the Supreme Court over the Army Amendment Act.
The government earlier filed a petition in the SC regarding the Army Amendment Act in a case related to the extension in tenure of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS).
in the petition, the government requested the court to accept the application of the challenged judgment of 28th November 2019 in the interest of justice.
The petition stated, “The petitioners have a strong prima facie case to succeed; hence the operation of the impugned judgment may be suspended/stayed till the final decision of this civil review petition.”
It further stated, “Balance of convenience lies in favor of the petitioners and if the injunction as prayed is not granted, the petitioners will suffer irreparable loss.”
