The La­hore High Court (LHC) on Wed­nes­day is­sued no­tices to for­mer premier Nawaz Sharif, his daugh­ter Maryam Nawaz and Pun­jab Law Min­is­ter Rana Sanaullah over con­tempt of court al­le­ga­tions. The no­tices were is­sued fol­low­ing a pe­ti­tion filed by Amna Ma­lik on Mon­day ac­cused Nawaz, Maryam and Sanaullah of in­cit­ing ha­tred against the ju­di­ciary in their speeches at the PML-N’s Jaran­wala rally on Jan­uary 27. Ma­lik’s lawyer urged the court to is­sue a no­tice to the Pak­istan Elec­tronic Me­dia Reg­u­la­tory Author­ity as well for per­mit­ting the broad­cast of speeches crit­i­cal of the ju­di­ciary. The lawyer re­quested the court to take ac­tion against the nom­i­nated par­ties. The court or­dered all par­ties sub­mit their re­sponses and ad­journed the case un­til Feb 14. The fa­ther-daugh­ter Sharif duo have drawn ire for their crit­i­cism of the Supreme Court’s (SC) Pana­m­a­gate verdict which dis­qual­i­fied the for­mer PM for fail­ing to dis­close a re­ceiv­able salary as an as­set. The PML-N chief and Maryam, as well as other party lead­ers, have ac­cused the court of bias and prejudice against Nawaz and have termed the de­ci­sion an “in­sult” to the “pub­lic’s vote”. Mul­ti­ple pe­ti­tions have been filed in dif­fer­ent courts against them ac­cus­ing them of con­tempt of court.
