LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday issued notices to former premier Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra), seeking replies on a petition which sought a ban on the PML-N leaders’ speeches.

The petition, mentioning links of multiple videos of Nawaz and Maryam, alleged that they had been delivering contemptuous speeches in political rallies against the judiciary and the Pemra too failed to act against them.

It accuses Nawaz of instigating the people against judiciary by announcing a rebellion as the petitioner requested court to impose a ban on the speeches of PML-N leaders. Justice Shahid Kareem of the LHC asked the Sharifs and Pemra to submit their replies by March 15.
