SC to give decision on review plea regarding dismissal of employees on Friday


Islamabad: The Supreme Court retained its decision on the request for review of the dismissal of 16,000 government employees, which will be announced on Friday.

At the hearing, Judge Omar Atta Bandil stated that the advertising, testing, and performance appointed by government agencies are necessary for transparency.

The Attorney General believes that the 2010 law should be regarded as a law that abolishes dismissals that violate the rules. In this way, the law is maintained and employees will be restored to their 1997 levels.

Judge Umar Ata Bandial further stated that the nature of the case has changed, so now the case will not be reviewed, but will be heard again.

The Attorney General stated that it is not yet clear whether the recruitment is legal, so the review request has been approved.

Justice Sajjad Ali Shah said that you are talking on assumptions, only the concerned agencies can tell the real situation in this regard.

On which Justice Umar Ata Bandial remarked that government proposals would be required in this regard. People should get their basic rights. The decision will be taken in the interest of the constitution, the law and the people.

We believe that the court’s decision has affected a large number of people. We will ensure that no thief can enter the government service through backdoors, Justice Bandial added. 

After hearing, the apex court reserved judgment in the case which will be announced on Friday.
