ISLAMABAD (APP) - A hectic week full of some important issues awaits judges of the Supreme Court when they will gather again after a break in the week starting from March 21. The solemn looking top adjudicators of the country wearing black robes will find certain significant issues in their caskets when they adorn their benches. From Monday, a seven-member special bench comprising the Chief Justice, Justice Javed Iqbal, Justice Mian Shakirullah Jan, Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani, Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmani and Justice Amir Hani Muslim is set to take up an issue that has carved a niche in the judicial history of the country. The bench will resume hearing of a set of appeals of dysfunctional and retired judges of superior judiciary who are facing contempt charges. On last date of hearing, justice retired Abdul Hameed Dogar, who served as chief justice of Pakistan after taking oath under the annulled provisional constitutional order of 2007 (PCO), and justice retired Sayed Zahid Hussain, a dysfunctional judge of the apex Court, rendered their apologies which were accepted. While on request of counsels for Justice Hamid Ali Shah, Justice Hasnat Ahmed Khan, Justice Syed Shabbar Raza, Justice retired Iftikhar Hussain Chaudhry, Justice Syed Sajjad Hussain Shah, Justice Yasmin Abbasey and Justice Jehan Zaib Rahim (all dysfunctional judges) time was granted for consideration of the issue. A four-judge bench of Justice Mahmood Akhtar Shahid Siddiqui, Justice Jawwad S. Khawaja, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Tariq Parvez, who had earlier decided to proceed against them under Contempt of Court Act by framing charges, had also been requested through registrar office to halt the process till final decision by the special bench. After the judgment of July 31, 2009, the PCO judges were issued contempt of court notices for not obeying the Supreme Courts restraining orders, and taking oaths under the PCO. However, at least 45 judges tendered unconditional apologies for taking oaths, but rest of them decided to contest the notices issued to them. A four-member bench headed by Chief Justice will also resume hearing of a case related to violation of Public Procurement Rules 2004 causing billions of rupees loss by National Insurance Company Ltd. Justice Muhammad Sair Ali is back in the bench after regaining his health. A two-member bench of Justice Mian Shakirullah Jan and Justice Amir Hani Muslim will resume hearing of case related to high rise buildings in Lahore. On Tuesday, a three-Judge bench headed by the Chief Justice will hear human rights issues of pensions to widows of retired government servants and the issue of conversion of public land into residential or commercial purposes in Karachi. Whereas on March 24, the same bench will deal with another suo motu case pertaining to loss of lives in a Drag Race held in Rawalpindi on December 5 last year. Besides these, the other regular benches will take up service matters, appeals against sentences, tax and land matters etc.
