Former Islamabad High Court judge Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui on Thursday again moved the Supreme Court for an early hearing of his petition against his removal by the Supreme Judicial Council two years ago.

On October 11, 2018, President Arif Alvi removed Justice Siddiqui as IHC judge on the recommendation of the SJC.

The council had unanimously opined that while delivering the speech before the District Bar Association in Rawalpindi on July 21, Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui, an IHC judge, displayed conduct unbecoming of a high court judge.
