ISLAMABAD: The spokesperson of Ministry of Law and Justice on Wednesday said that the federation would re-file Curative Review Petition (CRP) against Justice Qazi Faez Isa case verdict in due course of time after addressing the office objections raised by the Supreme Court Registrar Office.

“Against the order of the majority in the Review Petitions of Justice Qazi Faez Isa and others dated 26.04.2021, the Federation of Pakistan on 25.05.2021 preferred a Curative Review Petition on which certain objections were raised by the Office of the Supreme Court. After addressing the office’s objections the matter shall be re-filed in due course of time, in accordance with law,” reads the press release issued by the law ministry.

The registrar of the Supreme Court of Pakistan had returned a review petition filed by the government against the Supreme Court’s judgment on the review petitions in the Justice Qazi Faez Isa case.

The office had returned the application with the objection that a review could not be conducted twice into one case.

The reference filed by the government in May 2019 had alleged that Justice Isa acquired three properties in London on lease in the name of his wife and children between 2011 and 2015, but did not disclose them in his wealth returns.
