High Treason case: Nawaz Sharif submits reply in LHC
LAHORE – Disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif has submitted reply in the LHC over high treason case.
A three-member bench of the LHC headed by Justice Mazahar Ali Naqvi and comprising Justice Atir Mahmood and Justice Chaudhry Masood Jahangir heard the treason petition against Abbasi, Nawaz and journalist Cyril Almeida.
During the hearing, former PM Abbasi appeared before the bench today but Nawaz failed to appear before court. Expressing anger, Justice Mazahar Ali Naqvi asked why Nawaz did not appear in court and remarked that he should have been present for the hearing.
Nawaz’s counsel, Naseer Bhutta responded, “You had summoned a reply which has been submitted.” Justice Naqvi then stated, “Look Abbasi respects the courts and is present today.”
