ISLAMABAD - Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq, Tuesday, informed the apex court that he again wrote to Ministry of Law & Justice regarding pensions and other post-retirement benefits of the former Supreme Court Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah and hopefully, the matter would be resolved soon as per the court direction. A five-member larger bench, comprising Justice Nasirul Mulk, Justice Raja Fayyaz Ahmed, Justice Jawwad S Khawaja, Justice Rahmat Hussain Jafferi and Justice Tariq Parvez, maintained that the courts verdicts were not being treated seriously. The bench expressed dismay over the non-implementation of its verdict and again directed the government to pay Justice (r) Syed Sajjad Ali Shah the pension and other post-retirement benefits of a former chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) and submit a compliance report in the next hearing. The SC declared former Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah eligible for getting retirement pension and other incentives and directed the government to issue a notification in this regard. Justice Jawad remarked, The govt has been defying the court and there could be serious fallout of it. Justice (R) Sajjad Ali had to quit the apex court in 1997 after a 10-member bench headed by former CJ Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui ordered cancellation of his notification as Chief Justice and nominated Justice Ajmal Mian as the CJ. Justice Sajjad Ali, represented by senior counsel Akram Sheikh, contended that he had discharged his functions as CJ for three-and-a-half years as a matter of right and his appointment was without any flaw. Justice Shah had filed a petition stating that he was not being given pension and other incentives as per the procedure. He contended that he had discharged his services as Chief Justice for three-and-a-half years and his appointment was on merit. The case was adjourned till July 16.
