The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday sought a reply from its Registrar on a petition challenging out-of-turn promotions in the High Court Establishment, till May 30.
The court also asked the Registrar to submit a report regarding steps taken for implementation of the Apex Court orders in promotions case.
Justice Muhammad Anwaar ul Haq passed these orders while admitting petition filed by Assistant Registrar Muhammad Akmal Khan for hearing.
The petitioner had alleged that many officers of the court had been holding seats or posts in the leverage of Rule 26 of the LHC establishment rules.
The petitioner had argued that the petitioner was not given promotion despite that he had been serving the LHC for the last 24 years. He alleged that some other officials were promoted who had earlier been appointed under rule 26.
He alleged that appointments under rule 26 were out-of-turn appointments and thus their promotions had the same status. He said it was a violation of SC judgments.
He said in the light of the SC judgment, all appointments and promotions made under Rule 26 of the LHC establishment rules were out-of-turn appointments and promotions.
