Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Thursday firmly dismissed the establishment of an inquiry commission by the federal government to probe into the contents of the letter from Islamabad High Court (IHC) judges, reported 24NewsHd TV channel.

In a statement issued by PTI’s core committee, deep apprehensions were expressed over the Chief Justice of Pakistan's meeting with the prime minister concerning this critical matter concerning the national judiciary and legal integrity.

The party reiterated its demand to refer the issue to a larger bench of the Supreme Court for transparent and open proceedings.

Highlighting the gravity of the situation, the committee emphasised that the judges' letter from IHC stands as an indictment against federal government agencies.

It criticised the notion of appointing a retired judge for an inquiry into such a serious matter involving currently serving judges, deeming it a farce lacking independence and impartiality.

“The judges' letter has unveiled a significant threat to the judiciary's autonomy, directly addressed to the Chief Justice of Pakistan and the Supreme Judicial Council,” the statement said.

PTI accused the government of being the prime beneficiary of ongoing unconstitutional interventions in the country.

Responding to the judges' plea, PTI proposed a judicial conference to allow judges at all levels to present their perspectives on the matter, thus ensuring transparency and accountability before the nation.

On Tuesday, six of the eight IHC judges accused intelligence agencies of using coercive tactics to influence court proceedings in a letter written to the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC)

Earlier in the day, Federal Minister for Law Azam Nazeer Tarar announced the formation of an inquiry commission over the matter.
