@Haroon Choudhry: Yes but it's the SC right to see if law is being implemented and order its implementation.

Do not kid yourself. In past two years the amount of cases pending has reached historic levels. This is despite the fact that many cases have been summarily dismissed by the Supreme Court particularly those involving terrorists.

So many cases have piled up that the judiciary no longer sees it fit to release figures but any journalist covering the Supreme Court could tell them to you off the record.
