Chief Judge of Family Court Judge Hassan Saeed resumes work after his suspension was lifted.

He was indefinitely suspended in 2016 over a disciplinary issue.

Judge Hassan had come under fire for claiming two High Court judges to be the "most corrupt judges in the world."

JSC's director Hassan Zaheen told local news Mihaaru, that the commission has decided not to continue with the investigation of the case and hence lifted the suspension.

Although Judge Hassan had requested the Civil Court to rule in favor of delaying any suspension until the investigation concluded, the court subsequently denied his request.
