ISLAMABAD:

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on Monday filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against the objections on an application in the Justice Qazi Faiz Isa review case.

According to details, the FBR had filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against the objections of the registrar office.

The appeal stated that the decision of the registrar office should be quashed, the objections should be dismissed and the case should be fixed for hearing.

The appeal stated that the objections of the registrar office were against the law.

The FBR stated that the Justice Isa review case was decided without hearing the FBR.

Sarina Isa, the wife of Justice Isa, could not explain the three properties in London, it added.

The appeal stated that Sarina could not explain the transfer of funds abroad despite several FBR notices.

The FBR prayed the court that its appeal should be accepted for hearing as a first review appeal and objections of the registrar office be quashed.

The federal government had also pleaded before the Supreme Court that its April 26 majority judgment in the Justice Isa review case should not be left in the field for being manifestly and patently unjust and against the public interest and public good which defeats the judicial accountability.
