PML N leader Talal Chaudhry faces a worst blow from the Supreme Court
ISLAMABAD - *PML N leader Talal Chaudhry faces a worst blow from the Supreme Court over contempt of court review petition.*
The Supreme Court on Thursday turned down review petition of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) stalwart Talal Chaudhry against his sentence awarded in contempt of court case.
Talal Chaudhry’s review petition was taken up by a five-member bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Justice Musheer Alam.
The PML-N leader had challenged his disqualification in contempt of court case in the country’s top court, but his plea was rejected by a five-member bench of the court.
Earlier on August 2, last year, a bench of Supreme Court had disqualified Talal Chaudhry as he was found guilty for contempt of court and was handed over a sentence till the rising of the court.
The sentence by a three judges bench of the apex court headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmed renders Talal Chaudhry disqualified to hold public office for a period of five years.
