ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan summoned the record of speeches by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders including Khawaja Saad Rafique, Khawaja Asif, Talal Chaudhry and Asif Kirmani for voicing fierce reactions against the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) and the judiciary.
Earlier today, the JIT filed its fourth and final report to the apex court.
During hearing of the case, the SC issued show cause notices to Jang group, its owner Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman and reporter Ahmad Noorani over the story regarding the final report and ordered to file a case against SECP Chairman Zafar Hijazi for tampering the record of Sharif familyâ€™s business.
Meantime, the court summoned the record of speeches by the PML-N leaders against the JIT and the court within a week.
Criticizing the PML-N leaders, Sheikh Azmat Saeed gave an interesting remark, saying, â€œThose who gave fiery statements should be appointed as adhoc judge in International Court of Justice (ICJ).
Sitting in the courtroom, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry directed the courtâ€™s attention towards Rana Sanaullah and Abid Sher Ali.
Responding his comment, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed said the transcript of his speeches may also be brought. The remark caused laughter in the courtroom. â€“SAMAA
