SC rejects plea against Suddle Commission


The Supreme Court has rejected a plea seeking bar on the Shoaib Suddle Commission to probe into Arsalan Iftikhar case. During the proceedings, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain remarked that judges also had rights and asked for arguments to be completed early as Pakistan’s T20 match with Australia had started. Zahid Bukhari, counsel for Malik Riaz argued that Suddle had personal as well as family terms with Arsalan Iftikhar and asked the SC to stop the workings of commission until further orders, because it was a matter of transactions between two persons, so a commission should not have been formed. He said investigations had not been changed in Ali Musa Gilani and other cases. The SC turned down Bukhari’s plea and adjourned the proceedings until October 30.
