Talal challenges Supreme Court’s contempt verdict

News by:

PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry on Thursday challenged the Supreme Court’s verdict against him in a contempt-of-court case that had rendered him disqualified to contest elections for five years. The former minister of state for interior, in his appeal, has claimed that he was punished without the charges being proven against him and that the evidence in the case was not reviewed properly. Chaudhry, one of the most outspoken PML-N leaders, alleged that the prosecution’s perspective was given importance but the defence’s perspective was ignored.
