LHC summons Nawaz Sharif on 8th October

A three-member full bench, headed by Justice Mazahar Ali Naqvi, was hearing the treason petition against former prime ministers Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Nawaz Sharif, and journalist Cyril Almeida.  Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was present in court for the hearing while Nawaz Sharif and Almedia were absent. Defence counsel Advocate Naseer Bhutta apprised the court that Nawaz was unable to appear before it as people were frequently visiting him to condole the passing of his wife Begum Kulsoom. He further requested the court to fix the hearing for a date after his wife’s chaliswan.
