Who ordered its release to the media? Why the settled practice of sending the judgement to the next senior judge was not followed?, Justice Isa asked in a letter to SC registrar.
A five-page written order, authored by the CJP said that it would not be proper for Justice Isa to hear the matter considering that he had already filed a petition against the Prime Minister of Pakistan, in his personal capacity.
The written order states that one of the bench member, Justice Qazi Faez Isa, sought to place on record photocopies of certain documents received by him from some anonymous source through a WhatsApp message
The AGP submitted that since the authenticity of the documents is questionable, these might not be taken on record
