ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court responds over the COAS General Qamar Bajwa extension review petition by PTI government.
Supreme Court (SC) on Friday has approved government’s review petition over the case pertaining to extension of the service of Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa.
According to details, the plea has been allotted number for initial hearing. However, it will be heard as per the directives of Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP).
It is to be mentioned here that the review petition has pleaded with the court to constitute a larger bench, and to nullify the given judgment in the case. It has further requested the court to conduct in-camera hearings of the matter.
Earlier on Thursday, Federal Minister for Law and Justice Barrister Farogh Naseem held a meeting with Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Anwar Mansoor Khan in the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) for consultation before filing a review petition.
The Supreme Court, a month ago, had allowed extension/reappointment of Gen Bajwa for another six months and asked the government to determine the tenure, terms and conditions of the service of the army chief through legislation within the period.
