ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court rejected the PCO judges plea against Contempt of Court notices early Tuesday morning.
Earlier on Monday, the Supreme Court reserved its verdict on the petition filed by the PCO judges against the contempt of court notices issued to them.
The petitioner had claimed that the contempt notices were issued by a 13 member bench of the the High Court under contempt of court act 1976.
Initially, the judge in chamber rejected the appeal stating that it was the 2003 act which is applicable in this case. However the petitioner argued that if the 1976 act is applicable then in that case the appeal is competent and a stay order may be given.
If the notices are issued under the 2003 act then the notices stand null and void. The petitioner had asked the court to clarify under which act the notices were issued.
