A contempt plea has been filed against the senior vice president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Maryam Nawaz in the Lahore High Court over her negative remarks against the Supreme Court (SC) judges.

The plea was moved by Rana Shahid advocate in the Lahore High Court. The plea stated that Maryam in her Sargodha speech leveled allegations at the judges and tried to scandalize them without evidence.

Maryam maligned the judiciary in her speech. The plea has pleaded with the court to initiate contempt of court proceedings against Maryam Nawaz.
