Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan in a petition in the Supreme Court sought the formation of a judicial commission, comprised of three in-service judges of the apex court over the letter of six IHC judges, reported 24NewsHD TV channel Tuesday.

Noted jurist in his petition filed in the Supreme Court Registry pleaded that the judicial commission constituted to inquire into the incidents and find facts of the matter. He pleaded for strict action against those involved in exerting pressure over the judiciary and the government should also be ordered to pass relevant legislation to prevent such incidents.

The court should declare such steps against the law and the constitution and order to prevent the practice. “The pension and privileges of such person should be suspended, if he has retired, but found to be involved in practice of applying pressure over the judiciary,” he pleaded. “The supreme court should protect the freedom of judiciary,” the petition read.

Petitioner referred Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui’s statement and six IHC judges’ letter as evidence of intervention in judiciary.
