ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of former Ambassador to US Husain Haqqani’s review petition regarding the Memogate commission, for an indefinite period of time, Express News reported.
The decision was taken after a nine-member bench admitted the application filed by Haqqani’s Counsel Asma Jehangir, who sought time to deliberate over more points in the petition after the Supreme Court handed down the order on December 30.
Earlier, the Supreme Court had constituted an 11-member bench to hear Haqqani’s review petition.
The petition had challenged the court’s order on formation of a commission, and appointment of chief justices of three high courts to investigate the scandal.
In the review, Jehangir said the court did not have the authority to issue directions to judges of High Courts to constitute a commission.
