*ISLAMABAD - **New developments have been reported from Supreme Court of Pakistan in Justice Qazi Faiz Isa disqualification reference.*
*The Supreme Court will take up on September 17 the reference seeking the disqualification of Justice Qazi Faez Isa for hiding his assets. *
The Registrar Office has issued notices to the respondents.
Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa has formed a seven-member bench to hear the case. Justice Umar Ata Bandial will head the bench. Other members include justices Maqbool Baqar, Manzoor Ahmad Malik, Sardar Tariq Masood, Faisal Arab, Ijaul Ahsan, and Mazhar Alam Khan Miankhel.
