ISLAMABAD: A larger bench of the Supreme Court of Pakistan will hear the petitions filed

against the formation of a judicial inquiry commission probing the audio leaks allegedly involving current and former members of the superior judiciary and their family members.

A five-member larger bench chaired by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial will hold a hearing today at 11:00 am. The bench will include Justice Ijaz-ul-Ahsan, Justice Muneeb Akhtar, Justice Shahid Waheed, and Justice Hasan Azhar Rizvi.

It should be remembered that President Supreme Court Bar Abid Zubiri and others have challenged the summoning notice of the audio leaks commission and requested the Supreme Court to declare the proceedings and orders of the audio leaks inquiry commission as unconstitutional and illegal.
