Justice Isa’s remarks came during a hearing of a petition by the employees of Pak-Arab oil refinery. The lawyer in the case asked for a hearing after 15 days.

The CJP said that the refinery case would have to be put off for two months as the court will soon take up difficult cases which would not leave time for ordinary petitions. The lawyer ha

He also remarked that the general election case and military courts case were about to be fixed.

Cases filed under Article 184(3) have been on hold since the Supreme Court took up the Supreme Court Practice and Procedure bill.

However, the cases can be fixed again now that a full-court bench declared the bill to be in accordance with the constitution.

The military court case was adjourned by a larger bench under the previous chief justice after an assurance by the attorney general that no military trials would begin without informing the Supreme Court.
