Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Friday remarked that the Supreme Judicial Council is 'very active now' and the process of accountability has begun.

While hearing a case regarding the supervisory role of Lahore High Court over lower courts, the Chief Justice remarked "All judges will be held accountable now," Geo News reported.

"People have been crying and dying but are not getting injustice," he said.

Justice Nisar said, "Supreme Court's bench number 1 has wrapped up 7,000 cases but when we ask judges they say only 20 cases have been wrapped up."Further, he warned, "Those judges, who issue verdicts on a few cases, will also be tried under Article 209."On Thursday, President Arif Alvi removed Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui from the post of Islamabad High Court (IHC) judge.

The Supreme Judicial Council had recommended removal of Justice Siddiqui from his office over his controversial speech against Inter-services Intelligence (ISI) and judiciary before the District Bar Association, Rawalpindi on 21 July, 2018. UNI XC TV RSU 1328
