Islamabad (Staff Report): The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday rejected former Minister of State for Interior Talal Chaudhry’s plea to postpone the hearing of his contempt case till the general elections on July 25.
A three-judge bench of the top court, headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmad, resumed the hearing in contempt case against PML-N’s leader.
Kamran Murtaza, Chaudhry’s counsel, didn’t appear before the court. However, Chaudhry appeared before the court and requested to adjourn the case until general elections.
The court expressed anger over Murtaza’s absence and asked Chaudhry to engage a new counsel if Murtaza continues to skip hearings.
The court adjourned the case until Thursday.
While addressing a public gathering in Jaranwala, the PML-N stalwart had said: “There was a time when the Kaabah was filled with idols and now the judiciary, the country’s highest institution, is also full of PCO [Provisional Constitution Order] idols.”
