ISLAMABAD (APP) The Supreme Court on Friday directed Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Maulvi Anwarul Haq to personally look into the pending matter of grant of pensionary benefits to retired Chief Justice of Pakistan Syed Sajjad Ali Shah, and apprise the court on the next date of hearing. A five-member bench headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk resumed hearing of the plea filed through Mohammad Akram Sheikh advocate. The bench reprimanded Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Agha Tariq for not giving it real facts about the matter. The DAG had apprised the court that the summary had been returned by the Prime Minister Secretariat to the Law Ministry seeking its advice. On last hearing, the bench was apprised that the summary had been signed by the PM and sent to the President. Justice Fayyaz Raja remarked why the court should not proceed against the government's lawyer for submitting a false statement. Justice Nasirul Mulk asked the AGP to take personal interest into the matter. "Please don't make the matter laughable. The pensionary benefits pertain to the former CJ whose matter has been pending for the last eight years," he added. Justice Jawad S Khawaja remarked if things remained the same, they would head towards a massive crisis that could damage the institutions. The hearing was adjourned till first week of July. Sajjad Ali Shah had filed a plea with the apex court claiming that he had not been paid incentives and other pensionary benefits entitled to a retired CJ.
