Prominent TV Anchor Amir Liaqat Hussain lands in big trouble
ISLAMABAD - Prominent TV Anchor Amir Liaqat Hussain lands in big trouble. The Supreme Court has decided to indict Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf lawmaker and anchorperson Aamir Liaquat Hussain in a contempt case.
Hussain had been issued a contempt notice on August 10 by a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Umar Ata Bandial for using abusive and derogatory language against media and others.
In Tuesday’s hearing, the PTI lawmaker submitted an unconditional apology before the bench, however, the apex court said the apology will be considered once the statements were recorded.
Justice Nisar remarked that contemnors will not be spared. The hearing has been adjourned for one week.
