ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Tuesday, while hearing the Bani Gala case, remarked that perhaps Additional Attorney General Nayyar Abbas Rizvi was removed from his post for speaking the truth and that the government sacks those who stand up for justice.
A three-judge bench headed by the chief justice heard a suo motu case against illegal constructions in the Bani Gala suburbs of the federal capital.
As the hearing went under way, Justice Nisar inquired, What is the update regarding regularisation of Prime Minister Imran Khans residence and has he submitted a request for it?
Is there a delay in the regularisation of properties only because of Imran Khan? the top judge further questioned. Justice Nisar further sought details of those who have applied for regularisation of their properties and those who have deposited the regularisation fee.
Further during the hearing, the deputy attorney general told the court, We were given the file of the case after a delay. The chief justice then asked him to look-over the file and said that the court will take up the case after a break.
The court then went on a break.
