LAHORE: The Abbottabad inquiry commission has been challenged on Thursday in the Lahore High Court. According to media reports, the application indicates that Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani called Abbottabad raid a success while, the applicant highlighted, the operation was against country’s sovereignty.
The petitioner, Advocate Rana Ilmuddin Ghazi, said that the opposition had not been consulted in the formation of the commission. He pleaded that the commission should be formed under the chair of the chief justice of Pakistan.
He said that how a prime minister, who had declared the operation as a great achievement, could form an investigation commission.
He also pleaded that the incumbent and retired judges of the superior judiciary should be inducted into the commission.
The government on Tuesday set up the much awaited commission to probe US raid on May 2 in Abbottabad to kill Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
