Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has pledged a thorough investigation into the recent alarming development concerning ‘suspicious letters’ received by judges, including four Supreme Court justices, including Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa. The letters, containing threatening content along with suspicious powder, have also been reported by eight judges of Islamabad High Court and four judges of Lahore High Court.

Chairing a federal cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif assured a responsible approach towards addressing the matter, emphasizing the necessity to avoid political exploitation of the situation. Notably, an inquiry commission has been formed following consultation with former Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani, who recused himself from heading the commission.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has taken suo motu notice of the matter, indicating the gravity of the situation. Concurrently, the Prime Minister has decided to conduct a sectoral review of ministries to identify and address any underlying issues, with a particular focus on steering the economy towards self-reliance.

Despite prevailing economic challenges, there has been satisfaction expressed over a gradual decrease in inflation. Steps are underway to mitigate inflation, unemployment, and poverty, underlining the government’s commitment to fostering financial stability.

Confidence prevails in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) releasing the last tranche of $1.1 billion under the standby agreement this month, with Finance Minister Muhammad Aurangzeb’s visit to Washington aimed at negotiating a new program with the IMF further reflecting the government’s proactive stance in addressing economic concerns.
