Supreme Court halts implementation of bill curtailing CJP’s powers

Canada Global (Web News) In order to limit the Chief Justice of Pakistan’s (CJP) ability to take suo motu notice, the Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday halted the Supreme Court (Paractice and Procedure) Bill’s implementation until further instructions.

Four petitions had been filed against the law by Advocate Khawaja Tariq Rahim and others, and the case was heard by an eight-member bench of the Supreme Court, chaired by CJP Uma Ata Bandial, in an eight-page order. Regardless of whether President Dr. Arif Alvi signed the bill or not, it was indicated in the written order that it would not be put into effect.

The hearing was later postponed until May 2.
