Justice Faez Isa takes notice of funds release to MPs by PM

Taking notice of the release of development funds by Prime Minister Imran Khan to the lawmakers, the Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday summoned the advocate general and attorney general to appear in the case, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Justice Qazi Faez Isa has reportedly taken notice of the matter after reading a story published in a newspaper.

Justice Isa remarked that the case would be forwarded to the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) for the formation of a bench.

Attorney General Khalid Jawed Khan, on the occasion, said that he would inform the court after getting instructions from the government. “Whatever step the government takes will be in accordance with the rules, constitution and the court orders,” he assured.

Justice Isa told the attorney general if the release of development funds was found to be as per the rules and the constitution, the court would close the chapter. “Otherwise, the court will take action,” he added.
