ISLAMABAD: Hearing a suo-motu case against PML-N Nehal Hashmi in connection with threats to Joint Investigation Team (JIT), the Supreme Court of Pakistan said he apparently committed contempt of court.

The judges expressed displeasure on the Pemra for submitting incomplete text of Hashmi’s speech and did not mentioned the contemptible phrases in the text.

Responding to this, Hashmi’s lawyer said his client never threatened anyone.

Three-member bench headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, comprising Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijaz-ul-Hassan heard the case.

Earlier as the court opened its proceedings, Hashmi’s lawyer submitted new application seeking more time for medical treatment as his client is ailing.

When Nehal Hashmi said, “I want to tell the court as to under what conditions, I made the speech,” Justice Ijaz-ul-Hassan said, “We already had received your response spanning over 27 pages.”

The lawyer said the issue came into being only because of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan. On this, the stunned judge remarked, “How is Imran Khan related to this case?”

Hashmi’s lawyer repeated that the drama was kick-started by Imran Khan, adding an application has been moved against the television channels also. On this the court voiced displeasure saying, “It means you did nothing. It was channels that kicked up the issue.”

On this the counsel said the registrar also did not mention anywhere that the judges were given threats.

Later, the court adjourned the hearing till August 21. –SAMAA
