ISLAMABAD: On Friday, Supreme Court Judge Justice Mansoor Ali Shah raised an objection to the bench hearing the Pakistan Tekreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Petition against the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) amendments.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial and comprising Justice Mansoor and Justice Ijazul Ahsan heard the petitions.

During the hearing today, which is the 48th hearing on the petition, Justice Mansoor remarked: “I think that the full court should hear the NAB amendment case; the case will have its own impact.”

He further said that the Attorney General for Pakistan Mansoor Usman Awan had raised an objection in the military court’s case.

“Under Sections 3 and 4 of the Surpeme Court (Practice and Procedure) Act, the case can be heard by a bench of at least 5 members,” he remarked, adding that the CJP should constitute a full court for the case.

Justice Mansoor said he had also suggested that a full court be formed for hearing the petitions challenging the military courts.
