LHC to hear contempt plea against Maryam on 6th
LAHORE (INP): The Lahore High Court’s (LHC) Justice Shujaat Ali Khan on Wednesday fixed the hearing of a contempt plea against PML-N chief organizer Maryam Nawaz for March 6.
Justice Khan heard the plea seeking contempt proceedings against the PML-N senior vice president over allegedly making contemptuous remarks during her speech at a party convention in Sargodha. The high court sought from the petitioner, Advocate Rana Shahid, past verdicts as to how this contempt of court petition could be heard. The petitioner sought time to present the previous verdicts, which the LHC granted, and set March 6 for the next hearing. The LHC clubbed numerous petitions against Maryam’s speech for hearing on March 6. At the outset of the proceedings, the petitioner shed light on the contemptuous remarks made by Ms Nawaz during her speech.
Meanwhile, a district and sessions court on Wednesday summoned Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior vice president and chief organiser Maryam Nawaz in the contempt case filed over scandalous remarks against judges of the Supreme Court. Additional Sessions Judge Mumtaz Solangi has directed Maryam Nawaz on March 10. He has also summoned SSP Sukkur and Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) officers in the case. The petition was filed by the PTI district Sukkur president Zaheer Babar, alleging that the PML-N stalwart had defamed the institutions.
Addressing a workers’ convention in Sargodha last week, the PML-N chief organiser had expressed reservations over some of the judges of the top court’s nine-member bench formed to take up the suo motu notice on delay in Punjab and KP polls. A day earlier, former Attorney General of Pakistan Anwar Mansoor Khan wrote a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial, seeking action against Maryam Nawaz for “scandalising courts and personalised criticism of judges”. The senior advocate, in his letter, referred to a speech made by the PML-N leader on Feb 23 in Sargodha where she came hard on the former serving judges of the Supreme Court for allegedly conspiring against his father Nawaz Sharif.
