The Islamabad High Court on Monday dismissed a plea seeking the inclusion of former chief justice of Gilgit-Baltistan Rana M Shamim’s name on the no-fly list.

The high court also rejected a petition wherein the petitioner requested to become a party in the contempt of court case against the former judge.

The petition was filed by Supreme Court lawyer Rai Muhammad Kharal on December 3 requesting to place Justice (retd) Shamim’s name on the Exit Control List and become a party in the contempt of court case against him.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah, while rejecting the plea, said that the contempt case was specifically between the court and the accused. “How can the petitioner expect to become a party in the contempt case,” the CJ questioned.
