The Supreme Court Thursday took suo moto notice of Senator Faisal Vawda’s press conference in which he criticised the judges of the superior judiciary, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The Islamabad High Court’s Registrar Office responded to Faisal Vawda's letter a day after the senator expressed annoyance over the court’s inability to respond.

The senator had requested information regarding Justice Babar Sattar's green card status before his appointment.

In its response, the Registrar Office clarified that holding citizenship or residency in another country does not disqualify someone from becoming a judge under the Constitution.

The response further explained that the high court does not inquire about dual citizenship upon a lawyer's appointment as a judge.

During today’s hearing of the NAB amendments case in Supreme Court, Justice Athar Minallah at one point remarked that now threats are being issued to the judges, to which Attorney General for Pakistan Mansoor Usman Khan said he condemned these threats as these were unacceptable.

Justice Minallah said “Let them speak, they are exposing themselves.”

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Qazi Faiz Isa will hold the hearing tomorrow. Justice Irfan Saadat and Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan will join the bench.
