A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial, comprising Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Muneeb Akhtar, heard a review petition filed by Election Commission of Pakistan ECP, pertaining to Supreme Court’s earlier decision about election date in Punjab.

During the hearing the CJP addressed Attorney General of Pakistan, and talked about the controversy surrounding his “Good to see you,” comment to Imran Khan. “We saw you and said ‘Good to see you’, with an open heart. Things said in a different context were reported in such a way that they gave a wrong impression, everything we do is not reported correctly.”

While talking about news reports claiming that the CJ provided a Mercedes to Imran Khan to commute in, Justice Bandial said, “It was said that Imran Khan was given a Mercedes by the court, I don’t even use a Mercedes myself.”


Earlier, Supreme Court’s spokesman also clarified that the court did not provide a Mercedes to Imran Khan.
