IHC asks govt to take measures in Shireen Mazari’s arrest matter

38

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday instructed the Attorney General for Pakistan (AGP) to take appropriate measures in the matter pertaining to the arrest of PTI leader Dr Shireen Mazari and also inform it on next date of hearing regarding formation of a commission.

Chief Justice Athar Minallah heard the case against the arrest of Shireen Mazari. AGP Ashtar Ausaf Ali appeared before the court.

At the outset of hearing, the chief justice remarked that the missing persons’ case was also fixed for hearing on September 9, and it was hoped that the disappeared people would be recovered.

He said the court had sent a victim family to the former prime minister and issued instructions that the chief executive would appear in person if the missing citizen was not recovered.

The court did not want to go to that extent but it was an important matter. The chief justice questioned whether a civil chief executive could express helplessness.—INP
