ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa has filed a plea in the Supreme Court (SC) seeking the establishment of a full-court to hear all petitions on Monday.
In his petition, Justice Isa maintained that the chairman and members of the Supreme Judicial Council are not authorised to hear presidential references.
Last week, the Supreme Judicial Council had canceled a reference against Justice Isa, stating that the allegations against him were not serious or grave enough to constitute misconduct sufficient for his removal.
The Council had heard a reference alleging that Justice Isa had violated the code of conduct for judges by writing two letters to President of Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi.
Justice Isa had written letters to President Alvi after the law minister instituted a presidential reference against him for allegedly possessing properties in the United Kingdom in the name of wife and children.
