ISLAMABAD The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned the hearing of withdrawal of the notification regarding judges restoration sine die and observed that all the institutions of the state were bound to implement the apex courts orders and the judgment in this regard had already been passed. Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary, heading a 17-member bench hearing suo motu case related to media reports alleging that the government was considering withdrawal of the notification, said the judiciary was performing its functions in accordance with the Constitution. The CJ asked the Attorney General Anwar-ul-Haq, Whether anyone from the government has desired to file a statement? The AG replied in negative. He, however, said that a committee has been constituted to probe the authenticity of the news story, and submitted its interim report and sought time for submitting the final report. The court conceded to the request and adjourned the hearing for an indefinite period, but said on the receipt of report from the committee, if need be, the matter shall be heard in court. Anwar informed the court that notices have been issued to Wamiq Zuberi and Fakhar Rehman to appear before the committee, set up to investigate the news, on October 23. The Attorney General also told the court that in compliance with the court order of October 15, 2010, he has sent the order to 105 constitutional and state functionaries and administrative heads and also already sent the compliance report to the Registrar SC. During the proceedings, Justice Javed Iqbal said last night (Sunday) one of the private TV channels claimed that the PM even signed judges withdrawal notification. The AG said that neither such kind of notification was issued nor the government had such intention. The court expressed concern over the word 'standoff mentioned in the inquiry committee report, and asked the AG, does it mean a conflict? Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday said if someone uses this kind of language in a public meeting, then one can understand its meaning, adding all the members of the committee were responsible persons. Every day we hear that there was a war between judiciary and the executive. He said show any judgment that reflects that there was a war or conflict between these two organs of the State. He said that the court had left the matter of National Reconciliation Ordinance to the Parliament, but it did not approve it. He questioned if the court takes notice on promotion of a convict then should it be declared a war. On the rental power plants issue, a parliamentarian, Faisal Saleh Hayat, had filed a case in the court, Justice Ramday said, and added the court did not ask Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Chaudhary Nisar to challenge the appointment of NAB chairman in the apex court. Some representatives of the lawyers community, who were present in the court room, wanted to talk on the executive order, but the Chief Justice stopped them, saying the matter has been decided. Last Friday, the bench had passed a restraining order that withdrawal of the judges notification was not possible after the apex court had settled the issue in its July 31, 2009 decision while any ultra constitutional move against judiciary would be tantamount to treason under Article 6 of the Constitution.
