Verdict on PCO judges bench today

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court will today (Monday) announce its verdict on the formation of its bench hearing contempt of court cases against superior court judges who took oath under the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO).
The oath had been taken in violation of a restraining order passed by a seven-judge bench of the apex court on November 3, 2007. A five-member larger bench comprising Justice Muhammad Sair Ali, Justice Mahmood Akhtar Shahid Siddiqui, Justice Jawwad S Khawaja, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Tariq Parvez, will announce the verdict, which was reserved earlier.
Earlier, the counsel for the respondents had objected to the formation of the five-member bench, saying that the bench included some judges who were party to the case.
