The Supreme Judicial Council, which conducts proceedings on complaints against judges, on Wednesday issued a show-cause notice to Islamabad High Court judge Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui for a controversial speech he had made in Rawalpi-
ndi.
The SJC has directed Justice Siddiqui to submit a statement on the matter by August 28.
Last week, in a speech delivered before the Rawalpindi District Bar Association, Justice Siddiqui had alleged that a security agency had “manipulated judicial proceedings” and “gets benches formed at [its] will”.
