In response to these revelations, Pakistan’s top judge called for a meeting with a full panel of 15 Supreme Court judges to discuss the matter.

Prime Minister Sharif, along with the Law Minister, Attorney General, and other officials, will convene with Chief Justice Isa and Senior Puisne Judge Syed Mansoor Ali Shah at 2 pm at the apex court.

Prior to the full-court meeting on Wednesday, the Attorney General and Law Minister also held discussions with Justice Isa, expressing concerns about the timing of the letter.

Reports in local media suggest that the prime minister is likely to urge CJP Isa to conduct an inquiry into the allegations made by IHC judges and former judge Shaukat Siddiqui.
