Judgment reserved on contempt of court petition against Maryam Nawaz and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has reserved its judgment on the contempt of court petition filed against Maryam Nawaz and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

During the hearing, counsel for the petitioner said that what was said in the press conference against Saqib Nisar was contempt of court.

Chief Justice Athar Minallah remarked that talking about a retired man does not constitute contempt of court. Even if it is the Chief Justice. Judges are in a very high position. Criticism should be welcomed.

Addressing the petition, the Chief Justice said that a person who is himself a victim can also file a defamation suit. Ansar Abbasi’s show cause notice is a separate case.

Petitioner Advocate Kulsoom while talking to media said that targeting of former judges of Supreme Court hurt the feelings of people at national and national level.
