The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (SC) Qazi Faiz Isa decided to auction the opulent vehicles allocated to the Chief Justice's office.
The Registrar of the SC has officially communicated the decision by sending letters to the cabinet secretary and Punjab chief secretary, instructing them to proceed with the auction as per CJ Isa’s directive.
The auction will include a 2020 Mercedes Benz, valued at Rs61 million, and a bulletproof Land Cruiser provided by the Punjab government.
SC registrar letter wrote: “The decision reflects a stance against the importation of luxury vehicles for constitutional positions. CJ Qazi Faiz Isa refrained from utilizing either of the specified vehicles and funds generated from the auction should be directed towards public transport initiatives.”
The letter stressed that the decision reflected the Chief Justice's commitment to utilizing resources for the greater public welfare.
