ISLAMABAD: On the last day of the caretaker government of Prime Minister Mir Hazar Khan Khoso, the Supreme Court suspended all postings, transfers and deputations ordered by him.
In continuation of a directive given by the court on May 22, a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry asked the secretaries of the establishment and cabinet divisions and the health ministry to furnish by Wednesday the list of appointments, transfers, postings and removal of government officers done by the interim government.
The fresh directive was issued when PML-N leader Khawaja Asif complained to the bench that despite the May 22 order more than 100 officers of grade 17 and above of the government of Balochistan had been posted on deputation in federal ministries, divisions and departments in violation of rules and regulations. The caretaker prime minister belongs to Balochistan.
A petition filed by Mr Asif had challenged the transfers, postings and shuffling of top government officials.
The PML-N leader said the caretaker government had terminated the services of several officers. An adviser to the finance ministry was removed four days ago when the annual budget was being prepared.
On May 22, the court had suspended the transfers and postings of top officials perceived to have been made outside the caretaker government’s mandate which was limited to transfers for the sake of holding free and fair elections and running the day-to-day business.
