LAHORE: On Monday, the Lahore High Court adjourned contempt of court proceedings against former interior minister Ahsan Iqbal till September 5.
A three-member bench led by Justice Mazahir Ali Akbar Naqvi was hearing a petition today filed against Iqbal, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and 16 other leaders of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for making anti-judiciary speeches.
Iqbal’s lawyer informed the court that his client had submitted an unconditional apology in relation to the contempt of court proceedings against him.
To this, the bench questioned whether the former interior minister had accepted his mistake. You have praised yourself [more than apologise] in your response, the bench said to Iqbal.
