The objections raised by the registrar of the Supreme Court on the review petitions in Justice Qazi Faez Isa case judgement filed by the president and the federal government have come to light, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday. 

According to the SC registrar, President Arif Hussain Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan had used objectionable language in the review petitions. He also stated that the title of the case in review petitions was given as ‘suo motu notice’.

The registrar explained that suo motu case is not filed, rather the apex court takes the matter itself. He said there was no curative review option present in the Supreme Court rules.

He objected that the concluding part of the review petitions failed to state the appeal in a right way. 

He said that an appeal against the court decision could be submitted under the Order 28 of the Supreme Court Rules. 

The registrar pointed out that along with review petitions, a miscellaneous petition has also been attached. 

The petitioners requested two-week time for the submission of required documents, the registrar said and concluded that since the review petitions were non-maintainable, thus the registrar office dismissed them.
