ISLAMABAD - Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Thursday rejected the plea of Attorney General of Pakistan about the adjustment of cases fixed before the Judicial Commission and Supreme Court on January 16th.

According to the Supreme Court statement, the Chief Justice observed: ‘Both the matters are very important and have already been fixed by the Commission and this court, therefore, any order passed for adjustment would likely to cause delay in the respective proceedings’.

Earlier, AGP Maulvi Anwar ul Haq on Thursday submitted an application before the CJP about the adjustment of the hearing because two cases are fixed on January 16th.

The commission in the Islamabad High Court on Monday is hearing Memogate case but the same day, the apex court will take up the case regarding the non- implementation of the court’s judgment on NRO.

The AGP has been summoned from both sides, therefore, he requested the CJP to adjust the hearing of both matters.

The Chief Justice rejecting his plea said both the matters are very important and have already been fixed by the Commission and this court, therefore, any order passed for adjustment would likely to cause delay in the respective proceedings.
