LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz were put on notice on Wednesday on a petition seeking action against them for consistently targeting the Supreme Court in their statements.
A division bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) issued notice to the respondents to submit their replies by January 18.
The petitioner contended that Sharif and his daughter have been heaping scorn on the judiciary in their statements, which constituted contempt of court.
He, therefore, requested the judges to initiate contempt of court proceedings against them and restrain them from issuing such statements.
Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, have been severely criticizing the apex court for quite some time for ousting the former and letting his arch-rival Imran Khan off the hook.
