Supreme Judicial Council moves against SC judges over presidential reference

*ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) on Thursday issued notice to the Attorney General for hearing of Presidential Reference against Justice Qazi Faez Isa, and some other judges.*

The SJC will hear the reference on June 14.

Justice Qazi Faez Isa, a senior Supreme Court judge, earlier approached President Arif Alvi, to provide a copy of reference reportedly filed against him under Article 209 of the Constitution.

According to sources, the presidential reference was sent to the Supreme Judicial Council two days ago.

The SJC has been requested to initiate proceedings against the judges under Article 209 of the Constitution.

The presidential reference has been filed against the judges over the allegations of hiding their assets.

The Attorney General of Pakistan will appear in the hearing of reference as prosecutor.

Earlier, Justice Qazi Faez Isa, wrote a letter to President Arif Alvi drawing his attention towards reports quoting government sources that a reference had been filed against him under article 209.
