PTI rejects commission, insists judges’ allegations be addressed in open court

ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has rejected the government’s plan to appoint an inquiry commission following a letter sent by six justices of the Islamabad High Court claiming judicial interference.

The PTI’s core committee held an emergency meeting and rejected the government’s decision that an inquiry would be conducted by a commission led by a retired judge.

Concerns were raised during the discussion over the Chief Justice’s meeting with the Prime Minister on this sensitive issue. It further demanded that the subject be heard in open court by a larger Supreme Court panel.
