ISLAMABAD: The President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari, on Friday appointed the most senior judge, Justice Ishtiaq Ibrahim, as the Acting Chief Justice of Peshawar High Court (PHC).

The Law Ministry in Islamabad has issued a significant notification regarding judicial appointments in Sindh and Peshawar.

Meanwhile, in a move to bolster the Sindh High Court’s bench, the President has appointed six additional judges, including a female judge.

Among the newly appointed judges are Justice Sana Akram Minhas, Justice Amjad Ali, Justice Jawad Akbar Sarwana, Justice Khadim Hussain Soomro, Justice Muhammad Abdul Rehman, and Justice Arbab Ali Hakro, all of whom are poised to contribute significantly to the Sindh High Court’s judicial proceedings.

Last month, the former Chief Justice Mohammad Ibrahim Khan of Peshawar High Court (PHC) penned down a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) and expressed dismay over alleged discrimination in the appointment of Supreme Court judges.
