President Dr Arif Alvi accepted the resignation of Supreme Court’s (SC) Justice Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi. The resignation was accepted on the advice of the prime minister under Article 179 (retiring age) of the Constitution. Justice Naqvi resigned from the SC stating that it was no longer possible for him to continue due to circumstances that were public knowledge. He clarified that the date on his resignation letter was wrong. The Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) had issued a show cause notice to Justice Naqvi amid complaints alleging bench manipulation and financial misconduct. Four complaints have been filed against Justice Naqvi before the Council for amassing illegitimate assets and misconduct.
