Justice Mansoor Ali Shah of Supreme Court of Pakistan on Friday urged his outgoing Chief Justice Umer Atta Bandiyal to constitute a full court bench (comprising all 16 judges) to hear petitions against amendments in anti-graft laws. Petitioner Imran Khan, disgraces out of office in a no confidence vote in April 2022 alleged that amendments helped in withdrawal of corruption cases against the previous government coalition led by Shahbaz Sharif.
