Former CJs excuse themselves from joining judicial commission
It seems like the government has yet again reached a dead end with regard to the formation of a judicial commission to probe the Panama Papers’ scandal. According to details, the federal Ministry of Law and Justice contacted former Chief Justices of Pakistan Tassaduq Hussain Jillani and Nasir-ul-Mulk. Both former justices were asked them to provide their opinion on joining the judicial commission.
According to sources, both former Chief Justices excused themselves from being a part of the judicial commission. On the other hand, federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar stated that in order to appoint the head of the judicial commission, people were being contacted. An announcement in this regard would be made within a day or two, he had said.
The government has been busy trying to set up a judicial commission after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s address to the nation, in which he offered to present himself before a judicial commission comprising of retired judges who would probe the Panama Papers’ scandal.
