    After the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), provincial bar councils have announced a strike on June 14 over references filed by the government against Supreme Court judge Qazi Faez Isa and two high court judges.

    All bar councils have announced a strike on June 14 on account hearing of a reference against Justice Isa.

    References

    Earlier, the government filed references with the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) against two high court judges and one Supreme Court judge for owning properties abroad.

    According to reports, the three judges own properties abroad but did not mention them in their wealth statements.

    The SJC is the only constitutional authority mandated by Article 209 of the Constitution of Pakistan to conduct inquiries into allegations of incapacity or misconduct against a judge of the Supreme Court or of a high court.

    It comprises chief justice of Pakistan as chairman, two senior most judges of the Supreme Court and two senior most judges of the high courts as members.
