Judge recuses himself from hearing Maryam’s passport plea


Justice Anwaarul Haq Pannun, a member of the division bench of the Lahore High Court excused himself from hearing the Pakistan Muslim League-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz’s petition for the return of her passport.

Following Justice Anwaar’s recusal, the head of the bench Justice Ali Baqar Najafi sent the file back to the chief justice of the LHC. The CJ will reconstitute the bench at the request of Maryam Nawaz.

Earlier this week, Maryam Nawaz approached the LHC for the return of her passport, which she had surrendered before the LHC deputy registrar after she had been granted post-arrest bail in the Chaudhary Sugar Mills Limited case.
