ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Meeting of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to examine the Appropriation Accounts for the Years 2010-11 to 2020-21 pertaining to the Supreme Court of Pakistan will be held on May 16, 2023 at the Parliament House in Islamabad.
The meeting will be presided over by the PAC Chairman Noor Alam Khan.
Earlier while speaking on the floor of the National Assembly on Tuesday, Noor Alam Khan said that under the Constitution, no Court can seek proceedings of the Parliament; however, he added that the Public Accounts Committee has the authority to seek records of the accounts of Courts and other institutions.
The Federal Minister for Defence Khawaja Asif said that the Supreme Court has sought proceedings of this house which are not hidden from anybody. He said that we should provide the Court with the proceedings but the Parliament should also seek record of their matters.
Khawaja Asif said that a House Committee should also be constituted to examine the cases decided by the judiciary in the past.
Earlier in its meeting held on March 07, the PAC ordered the Auditor General of Pakistan (AGP) to audit the Supreme Court’s budget and submit a comprehensive report on salaries, perks and privileges, and plots allotted to judges of the apex court.
