ISLAMABAD: The high-powered judicial commission formed to probe the audio leaks related to the judiciary announced on Monday that the proceedings of its inquiry will be made public.

The commission’s first hearing was held today in courtroom number 7 of the Supreme Court (SC), presided over by SC judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa and including Chief Justices Aamer Farooq of the Islamabad High Court and Naeem Akhtar Afghan of the Balochistan High Court.

Additionally appearing before the commission’s three members was the attorney general, Mansoor Usman Awan.

The judicial group was constituted by the federal government on Saturday and given a 30-day deadline to conclude its work.

A notification issued by the cabinet division stated that the commission has been constituted in the wake of widely circulated controversial audios pertaining to the judiciary including the former chief justice and judges of the Supreme Court which raised “serious apprehensions about the independence, impartiality and uprightness of the Chief Justices/Judges of the Superior Courts in the administration of justice”.

The government said the audio leaks raised serious apprehensions about the independence of the judiciary in the public interest; therefore, it has constituted the commission under Section 3 of the Pakistan Commissions of the Inquiry Act, 2017.
