Justice Qazi Faez Isa on Monday said that that the federal government was scared of the truth, therefore it was opposing his application for a live broadcast of his review petition against June 19 order.

The Supreme Court resumed the hearing of Justice Isa application seeking the apex court permission to allow live TV coverage of the proceedings of his review petition against the majority judgment that had referred the matter of his family’s properties to the Federal Board of Revenue for inquiry.

A 10-member full-court presided by Justice Omar Atabandial heard the case. He questioned the maintainability of applications by saying that the SC while hearing the review petition, can not decide this matter.

“it’s not judicial matter but also a policy issue and same can only be decided in full court meeting on the administrative side,” the apex judge added

During the proceedings, Justice Isa prayed that his life has been under a microscope for the last two years. “Now I want to public it but they (government) do not want to do so,” the Justice added.

He prayed that the government wanted a controlled media therefore people are going on social media platforms like You Tube.

Additional Attorney General Amir Rehman prayed before the court that the federal government declared Justice Faiz Issa’s petition inadmissible.
