LHC adjourns contempt proceedings against Ahsan Iqbal

News by:

Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday postponed contempt proceedings against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ahsan Iqbal until September 5.
Justice Mazhar Ali Akbar Naqvi heading a three-member bench heard a petition against Iqbal along with 17 other PML-N leaders for passing anti-judiciary remarks.
Iqbal’s counsel informed the court that the former interior minister had already submitted an unconditional apology over the court proceedings against his contemptuous remarks.
The high court bench in response questioned if Iqbal had also accepted his mistake. He added that the apology rendered to the court was more praise than a apology.
The bench asserted that PML-N leaders submitted apologies in court and outside passed remarks that their party was being targeted.
Justice Atir Mahmood, high court Judge observed that “if the verdict is in the party’s favor then the judiciary is right, otherwise it is wrong�. He questioned “You tell us, which other party besides yours has commented on the judiciary?
