LIVE: SC resumes hearing Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui’s removal plea

Ex-judge nominates Gen (retd) Faiz Hamid, Gen (retd) Bajwa and others as parties in his case after SC’s orders

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court resumed on Friday its hearing on former Islamabad High Court (IHC) judge Shaukat Azizi Siddiqui’s petition challenging his dismissal. 

A five-member bench led by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa and comprising Justice Amin-ud-Din Khan, Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail, Justice Hasan Azhar Rizvi and Justice Irfan Saadat Khan is conducting proceedings on the plea.

Today’s proceedings are being broadcast live on the apex court’s website as well as on its YouTube channel.

A day earlier, the top court ordered Siddiqui to nominate former spy chief General Faiz Hamid, former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa and others in the plea against his dismissal.

The case was fixed for hearing earlier this month after the judge filed a miscellaneous application with the Supreme Court to conduct an early hearing of his plea against the decision by the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) on his dismissal.

Following the order, the ex-judge filed a plea seeking to make Gen Hamid, Gen (retd) Bajwa, Brigadier (retd) Irfan Ramay, Brigadier (retd) Faisal Marwat, former IHC chief justice Anwar Kasi, and ex-SC registrar Arbab Arif as parties in his case.

Lawyer Hamid Khan represented the former IHC judge in the case.
