No order against PCO: SC registrar

November 05, 2007

ISLAMABAD, Nov 4: The acting registrar has claimed that the Supreme Court did not overturn the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO).

“It is released for the information of all concerned that the rumour being spread that the Supreme Court has passed any order against the PCO is incorrect.

“The Supreme Court has not passed any such order,” a press release issued by the newly-appointed Acting Registrar of the Supreme Court Miss Saara Saeed said.

She said the judges of the Supreme Court who were not invited to take the fresh oath have ceased to hold office and could not exercise any judicial or administrative powers.

According to the notification issued, Mohammad Ali was posted as secretary to the new Chief Justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar and assumed his office on Sunday.

Mr Ali was made Officer on Special Duty after restoration of former Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry on July 20, 2007.
