Court summons record of CM’s speech

Court summons record of CM’s speech

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court Monday summoned video record of the speech of Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in which he allegedly uttered derogatory remarks against judges and army officials to determine maintainability of the petition. 

Justice Abid Aziz Sheikh was hearing a petition moved by Syed Mahmood Akhtar Naqvi seeking disqualification of the CM for making the statement to hold judges and army officers accountable for their alleged corruption, which according to the petitioner, had tarnished the image of the institutions. The judge asked the lawyer petitioner to come up with more arguments on the maintainability of the petition and adjourned the proceedings until April 26. 

The petitioner alleged that the respondent, CM, during his speech on International Women’s Day asked for the accountability of the judges and army officials. He said by giving such statement, the respondent had made fun of these institutions. He prayed the CM be declared disqualified as he was not eligible to hold the public office.
