Article 6 High treason case likely against former NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq


LAHORE – Interior Minister Ijaz Ahmed Shah on Saturday said that the federal government has received several petitions seeking charges under Article 6 – the crime of high treason – of the Constitution against former National Assembly speaker Ayaz Sadiq.

Shah while addressing a ceremony said, the petitions received in Islamabad and Lahore have been sent for legal review. “Ayaz Sadiq has passed a very wrong statement about Indian pilot Abhinandan and the army chief,” Interior Minister said.

I dismiss the allegations leveled against the Pakistan Army "from abroad", and swore that all this was an attempt to save the looted money.

Earlier on Friday federal minister for information Shibli Faraz also indicated legal action against the PML-N leader after he passed contentious claims regarding the release of Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman.
