Nehal Hashmi snubbed by SC, fails to comply with directions

ISLAMABAD - Supreme Court of Pakistan heard today the contempt case against the former Senator of Pakistan Muslim League PML- N, Nehal Hashmi.

Supreme Court directed Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz’s (PML-N) Nehal Hashmi to submit reply till June 16 in provocative speech case against judiciary and joint investigation team (JIT) probing Sharif’s assets.

The three-judge bench of the apex court resumed hearing of suo moto notice today (Monday). 

Hashmi, during proceedings, informed the country’s top court that he always supported rule of law and constitution upon which Justice Ejaz Afzal pointed out conflict in Hashmi’s statements.

Hashmi requested SC to list his case after Eidul Fitr as he wanted to perform Umrah and apprised court that he did not appear before judges who had taken oath under the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO).

Hashmi also failed in producing the material summoned by SC.

However, the apex court directed PML-N’s leader to submit reply till June 16 whereas Jutice Ejaz Afzal asked Hashmi not to take case lightly.
