ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Wednesday accepted the petition of former Chief Justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar challenging the Special Court order to include his name for investigation in the high treason case and adjourned hearing till last week of February.
The court also rejected the plea to suspend the Special Court verdict and directed the Supreme Court concerned department to submit all record of the case.
The three-member bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa and comprising Justice Mushir Alam and Justice Sardar Tariq Masood heard the case.
During the course of proceedings, Iftikhar Gillani counsel for the former CJP pleaded the court to issue order to exclude his clients name from the investigation in the high treason case. On this Justice Asif Saeed remarked that how it was possible to exclude his client’s name from the investigation.
He remarked that if the former CJP was not involved in the matter then he should not take the matter serious. Anything he knew he should tell the investigators and if he did not know something then regret it, he added.
