Chief Justice of Pakistan directs Secretary Finance that Chief Justice of Pakistan will not receive his salary till confirmation that all the employees have got their salaries

Islamabad, May 02, 2018 (PPI-OT): A three member bench, headed by Hon’ble Mr. Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, Chief Justice of Pakistan, and comprising other two Hon’ble Judges, Mr. Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Mr. Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan heard Human Right Case No.16985-G/2018 regarding non-payment of salaries to Government employees.

Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan had earlier directed that till the Secretary Finance and Controller General of Accounts furnish a certificate that all employees have received their salaries, he will not receive his salary. The Controller General of Accounts has furnished such certificate but the same was awaited from Secretary Finance.

Therefore, he was summoned to the Court today where during the proceedings of the case he submitted the requisite certificate that 6,56,000 employees have been disbursed salaries. However, in order to be certain, he sought further three days time for reconfirmation of salary disbursement to all employees of the Federal Government, which was allowed.
