Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has remarked we all are Pakistanis and we should protect our national interests. According to media reports a 3-member bench of SC presided over by the CJP resumed the hearing of development of copper, gold mine case. Balochistan advocate general Salah ud Din Mengal told the court that prospecting license of Reko Diq reserves has been awarded to BHP.
