No more suo motu notices until earlier ones resolved: CJP

The Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Tuesday announced he will not take new suo motu notices until the disposal of earlier suo motu cases.

The chief justice said the SC will not interfere in executive policies but it will just point out or identify the issues. CJP Nisar while addressing Babar Awan, asked all lawyers to assist the court in matters related to public interest.

He gave these remarks during the hearing of a suo motu case related to human smuggling.

The CJP took suo motu notices of multiple cases in the last couple of months. The brutal rape and murder of a minor girl in Kasur shook the nation and urged the CJP to take suo motu notice which led to hurried progress of the case.

The CJP also took suo motu notice of the extra-judicial killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud in an alleged ‘encounter’ in Karachi by former SSP Rao Anwar. Anwar remains at large while Sindh police have strict orders to arrest him.

The CJP also took suo motu notices of the killing of Asma Rani and four-year-old Asma in Kohat and Mardan respectively.
