Contempt of court case: Nehal Hashmi to be indicted again on March 26

Islamabad (Staff Report): The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday decided to indict Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) former senator Nehal Hashmi in contempt of court case on March 26th.

Taking up its second contempt notice against Hashmi, the apex court termed his reply unsatisfactory and turned down his apology, announcing to indict him.

Nehal Hashmi also appeared before the top court last week where he pleaded the court to reconsider its decision as his “children would die” to which the CJP responded: “You should have thought of that earlier,” adding that the court would “take care of” Hashmi’s children.

While talking to the media outside the top court, the PML-N loyalist claimed that he never uttered any words against the judges and judiciary.

“That clip showed the language of inmates,” he said, referring to his outrageous speech made minutes after his release from jail last month.

“It is my legal and constitutional right that my apology gets accepted. I shouldn’t be victimised politically,” declared the lawyer-turned-politician.

“I hope the court will think about my apology,” he noted.

Hashmi was sent behind bars for a month and was disqualified for five years by the apex court on February 1 over his contemptuous remarks made in May, last year.

Soon after his release, he made another speech, that riled the superior judiciary and Hashmi was served with second contempt notice on Wednesday.
