Islamabad - The Supreme Court (SC) announced that the petitions filed in the memo case are maintainable and ordered to form a probe commission, a private news channel reported. Three chief justices of High Court and a sessions judge will be part of the investigative commission, the SC order said, adding that it must complete the task within four weeks. A nine-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and comprising Justice Mian Shakirullah Jan, Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani, Justice Jawwad S. Khawaja, Justice Tariq Pervez, Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry and Justice Muhammad Athar Saeed is hearing the case.


During today’s proceedings, PML-N lawyer Rasheed A Rizvi gave his arguments and said the petition is not against any single person on which the Chief Justice remarked that the court is neither against any person nor giving verdict against him. He further said the court can intervene if the state seizes fundamental rights. Rizvi said the court did not include Rehman Malik’s statement related to memo case where he confirmed about the communication between Mansoor Ijaz and Husain Haqqani. The statement was not rebutted by any party, said the PML-N lawyer. Justice Jawwad Khawaja remarked that there is  no harm if the investigation is carried out in the memo case. It will unveil the truth in any case, he said.

Senator Ishaq Dar, member of Parliamentary Committee on National Security (PCNS), presented his arguments in favour of acceptance of the petitions before the nine-member bench. The court then adjourned the hearing and reserved the verdict till 3:00 pm.
