Justice Shujaat Ali Khan heard the petition filed by Advocate Shahid Rana for contempt of court against Maryam Nawaz and Azam Nazir Tarar in the Lahore High Court.
Advocate Shahid Rana took the stand in the court that whatever the case may be, I take it seriously, Maryam Nawaz gave a speech in Sargodha and this matter comes under the jurisdiction of this court, Maryam Nawaz has insulted the court on six occasions.
He said that I did not make this request for my fame, I don’t even need fame, we have to implement the law of contempt of court, Pakistan is not a republic.
Petitioner advocate Shahid Rana argued that the respondent had used ‘insulting’ words against the Supreme Court judges in his speech during the recent public meeting in Sargodha.
He said that all television channels and print media broadcast the defendant’s speech.
The petitioner contends that Maryam Nawaz has committed contempt of court under Article 204 (2) (b) of the Constitution and Article 2 (c) of the Contempt of Court Ordinance 2003.
He said that the defendant cannot publicize the alleged misconduct of the judge or the court but can inform the President or the Supreme Judicial Council by filing a reference under Article 209 of the Constitution.
The petitioner’s lawyer requested that the court issue a show cause notice to Adalia Maryam Nawaz for contempt of court.
After hearing the arguments of the petitioner’s counsel, the Lahore High Court reserved its decision on the petitions filed against Maryam Nawaz, Azam Nazir Tarar and other leaders for contempt of court proceedings.
Later, the Lahore High Court dismissed the application as inadmissible.
