ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has accepted PML-N leader Nehal Hashmi’s apology and withdrew the notice in contempt of court case.

Nehal Hashmi on Tuesday submitted a written apology in the court, regretting the use of derogatory remarks for judiciary.

“I left myself on the mercy of court,” stated Hashmi.

During the hearing, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar said the court does not want to punish Nehal Hashmi’s children for the mistakes of their father.

Appearing before the court, senior lawyers informed the Chief Justice about Hashmi’s financial affairs and requested him to pardon the former senator, who was sentenced to one month in prison with Rs50,000 fine on February 1, 2018.

Senior lawyer Rasheed A. Rizvi informed court that the Sindh Bar Council has suspended Nehal Hashmi’s license for 3 months.

PTI leader Naeem Bukhari was the only lawyer in the court who opposed pardon for Hashmi and sought punishment for the PML-N stalwart.

Nehal Hashmi was facing contempt charges for the second time over his anti-judiciary speech.
