ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday awarded another four-week extension to the judicial commission probing the memo case for finalising its proceedings and preparation of the report.

A ten-member larger bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry conducted the proceedings of the application of the acting secretary of the memo commission, seeking an extension in the time duration which was going to end on 12 May.

During proceedings, Deputy Attorney General Dil Muhammad Jan Zai opposed the commission’s request, arguing that sufficient time had already been granted for completion of the report.

However, the chief justice remarked that the commission is at the final stage of compiling the report and that extension request was appropriate.
