SC issues show-cause notice to Aamir Liaquat

Islamabad

The Supreme Court on Friday issued a show-cause notice to televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain to explain as to why contempt of court proceedings should not be initiated against him over contemptuous remarks.
Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, who headed a bench of the apex court, asked the alleged contemnor to explain why the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) notification with regard to his victory in the July 25 elections should not be suspended.
He asked if a person who doesn’t even know how to speak at a public forum should be in parliament?The top adjudicator told the PTI leader, who won the election from NA-245, Karachi, that he issued contemptuous remarks.
During the last hearing, the apex court had imposed Rs20, 000 fine on Aamir Liaquat Hussain for failing to appear before the court.—INP
