Plea for treason case against Nawaz: LHC seeksrecord ofNSC proceedings

National

May 16, 2018

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday sought record of the proceedings of National Security Committee (NSC) meeting, while hearing petitions seeking action against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif under treason charges for his recent media interview regarding 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The court asked the petitioners’ counsel to establish their stance that Nawaz Sharif’s statement was of that intensity that it should be treated under the treason charges. The petitioners plead that the statement of Nawaz Sharif amounted to treason against the country and he was liable to be proceeded against under Article 6 of the Constitution as well as sections 3 and 5 of Official Secret Act, 1923.

They prayed to the court to order the Ministry of Interior to lodge a case against the former prime minister under Article 6 of the Constitution and prosecute him in terms of high treason.
