ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court formulated an 11-member bench on Thursday to hear former Ambassador to US Husain Haqqani’s review petition regarding the Memogate commission, reported Express News.
The petition challenged the court’s order on formation of a commission, and appointment of chief justices of three high courts to investigate the scandal.
The court announced to begin the hearing from January 17.
The petition was filed by Haqqani’s former counsel, Asma Jehangir, who sought a thorough review of the Supreme Court order handed down by a nine-judge bench on December 30.
In the review, Jehangir said the court did not have the authority to issue directions to judges of High Courts to constitute a commission.
