Justice Khosa refuses to hear Hudabiya case, new bench to be formed

Panama Papers case verdict does not mention Godfather: Justice Khosa

ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court Judge, Justice Asif Saeed Khosa on Monday rescued himself from the three-member bench that was all set to hear the appeal of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in connection with Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.
NAB moved the Supreme Court against the decision of the Lahore High Court (LHC) quashing the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case against the Sharif family.
As the hearing began, Justice Khosa remarked that it could be the fault of the court office that the case was put up in front of him, as he had already spoken his mind on the subject in the Panama Papers case.
He added that it would thus not be appropriate for him to adjudicate the case.
The bench, headed by Justice Khosa and comprising Justice Dost Mohammad Khan and Justice Mazhar Alam Miankhel, was constituted on Friday.
It has now been disbanded and a new bench will be constituted by the chief justice.
