26/11 hearing put off again for want of judgeJun 23rd, 2009 | By Editor | Category: Investigation, Lead Story
ISLAMABAD: The proceedings against five Lashkar-e- Taiba suspects arrested by Pakistan for involvement in the Mumbai terror attacks were adjourned yet again on Saturday for want of a judge, this time to July 4.
Anti-Terror Court 2, to which the case has been assigned, has been without a judge for nearly a month after Sakhi Mohammed Kahut was moved out in a reshuffle . Another judge was appointed to succeed him but the government cancelled the appointment and no replacement has been found yet. Earlier this month, Interior Minister Rehman Malik assured Indian High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal that the Pakistan government was making all efforts for speedy prosecution of the suspects.
