Seven officers tender unconditio­nal apology


Seven officers of the Islamabad administra­tion and police yesterday tendered unconditio­nal apology before the Supreme Court over last month’s incident of manhandlin­g suspended chief justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry.

A three-judge bench, headed by acting chief justice Rana Bhagwandas, said it would consider the apology after hearing the case in detail and adjourned the proceeding­s to April 25.

The court issued amended contempt charges against the officers after Attorney General Makhdoom Ali Khan informed the bench that the April 4 indictment was made under a 1967 Act that had been superseded by a contempt of court ordinance promulgate­d in 2003.
