ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The federal government has announced the formation of a Judicial Commission to probe Islamabad High Court (IHC) judges’ allegations on ISI Operators for meddling into jurists’ affairs.

While addressing a Press Conference in Islamabad on Thursday along with Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Mansoor Usman Awan, the Federal Minister for Law Azam Nazeer Tarar said that the letter written by six IHC judges would be placed before the Federal Cabinet in its tomorrow’s meeting for consideration to form a Inquiry Commission to probe allegations leveled by six IHC judges regarding interference in judicial affairs by the Country’s intelligence apparatus.

About the meeting held between Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faez Isa at the Supreme Court in Islamabad, the law minister told that it was the Chief Justice who had expressed his desire to meet with the premier.

On Tuesday, six IHC judges — out of a total strength of eight — wrote a startling letter to the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) members, regarding attempts to pressure judges through abduction and torture of their relatives as well as secret surveillance inside their homes.

The letter addressed to SJC members also questioned if there existed a state policy to “intimidate” and coerce judges.

The six judges also supported the demand of former IHC judge Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui for a probe into the allegations of interference by Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) operatives.
