ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi’s plea challenging Lahore High Court’s (LHC) decision of holding ephedrine case hearings on daily basis.
A two-member bench headed by Justice Azmat Saeed heard the case.
The petitioner’s lawyer adopted stance that fair trial is not possible in day-to-day hearing therefore; chance should be provided to run the case in trial court.
The petitioner has asked the court to annul the decision of LHC and grant 10 days so that the trial can be conducted in fair manner.
“It is alright if date for hearing is given after two months? The proceedings of murder cases are also held daily. No one can dictate the court,” remarked the judge.
LHC had directed to conduct daily basis hearing of the case and announce the verdict till July 21.
