LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP), Justice Mian Saqib Nisar ordered to immediately remove all barriers outside the house of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shahbaz .
Hearing a suo motu notice on Sunday, the CJP came down hard on Punjab Chief Secretary Zahid Saeed when he said only the security gate near Hamza’s residence was removed and not the barriers.
“Hamza is a Member of National Assembly (MNA) and the Punjab chief minister’s son,” said the chief secretary when the chief justice inquired as to who Hamza was. The chief justice remarked further that the court could summon Hamza and ask him about the threats to his life.
CJP Nisar added that Hamza could shift his residence if there were genuine threats to him. The chief secretary assured the court of removing the blockades.
Chief Justice Nisar informed the official that he would visit the place in a private vehicle to check if his orders had been implemented.
