The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday announced its reserved verdict on the application seeking permission for live streaming of the hearing of review petitions in the Justice Isa case.

According to the details, a ten-judge SC bench headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial rejected the petition of Justice Qazi Faiz Issa who sought approval for live streaming of the hearing of review petitions.

Six out of ten judges of the Supreme Court ruled in favor of rejecting the petition of Justice Isa. Whereas four judges opposed the rejection of the petition.

In the previous hearing, Justice Isa urged that the future of generations lied in the hands of the court as it had to decide whether truth should be broadcast or not.

Let it be known that in the application, Justice Isa pleaded that the apex court should order the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority to issue written instructions to all private channels that they could not be restrained from broadcasting the court proceedings or live streaming of the proceedings.
