ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court issued on Monday a show-cause notice to Federal Privatisation Minister Daniyal Aziz in the contempt of court case against him.
A three-member bench headed by Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed conducted today’s proceedings.
On Feb 2, the apex court had issued Aziz a contempt of court notice over his controversial speeches and statements made during various TV talk shows.
As Aziz appeared in court, the bench observed that contempt of court by the minister can be determined after reading transcripts of his speeches from three TV channels.
The court then adjourned the hearing for Friday and directed the attorney general to be present in court so the case may move forward.
