ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Monday sought written reply from respondents in pleas challenging its verdict of withdrawing the sacked Employees Reinstatement Act (SERA).

A three-member bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial heard the review petitions filed by the government and sacked workers against the judgment, which struck down the Sacked Employees (Reinstatement) Ordinance Act, 2010.

Justice Bandial said that the case was to be heard by a five-member larger bench. Due to the unavailability of Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, the larger bench could not hear the case today, he added.

Later the court directed the counsels of respondents to submit written synopsis over the matter and adjourned the hearing till December 1.
