SC adjourns Siddiqui’s appeal against SJC decision

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned hearing of former Islamabad High Court judge Shoukat Aziz Siddiqui’s petition against the decision of the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) till the third week of March.

A five-member larger SC bench headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial heard the case.

During the course of proceedings, the court observed that there was similarly between Siddiqui’s case and that of Justice Qazi Faez Isa and it would be appropriate that Justice Siddiqui’s case should be heard after the judgment in latter’s case.

Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui’s lawyers also agreed to postpone the case.
