Dissatisfied with the Supreme Court detailed order in August 8, 2016 Quetta carnage suo motu case, lawyers from Balochistan will approach the Supreme Court for making Justice Qazi Faez Isa’s findings as head of the Quetta Commission part of the apex court’s order.

Five days after disposing of the case, the SC three-judge bench, headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, on Monday issued a five-page written order which said findings of the commission at its para 17 were based upon observations of the commission and “they are not to be treated as findings of this court.”

Talking to The Express Tribune, Balochistan Bar Council member Munir Kakar said lawyers are upset over the court’s recent judgment, which has held that Justice Qazi Faez Isa’s findings against former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan are not to be treated as findings of the apex court.
