ISLAMABAD: Hearing of review petition filed by former president Musharraf against July, 31, 2009 Supreme Court (SC) decision has not been included in the next week cause list and it is likely to be heard in the third week of January.

Sources told that no bench has been constituted in SC to hear Musharraf review petition, therefore, there is no possibility that his review petition will be heard in the week commencing from January, 6. However the petition can be fixed for hearing in the third week of January.

It may be mentioned that Pervez Musharraf had filed review petition against SC July, 31, 2009 decision wherein the apex court had rendered verdict that former president alone was involved in imposition of November, 3, 2007 emergency.

Registrar SC had raised objection over this review petition earlier but Ibrahim Satti counsel for Pervez Musharraf had again filed the petition after removing the objections. Registrar office had received it and marked number over it.
