A three-member bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice Shakirullah Jan resumed hearing of the Malik Riaz contempt case today.
The reply was submitted in the Supreme Court on behalf of Riaz by his counsel Dr Basit. In his reply Malik Riaz said he did whatever he could during the movement for the restoration of the judiciary, adding that the aim of his press conference was not to criticise the chief justice.
