Abbasi Disqualification: LHC Summons RO Along With Record

Lahore(July 04, 2018): Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday summoned the relevant Returning Officer (RO) along with all the record in disqualification case of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi from Murree’s NA-57 constituency.

Abbasi appeared before the court. His counsel argued that appellate tribunal cannot disqualify anyone for life.The court remarked, “Mr Abbasi! We want to speak directly with you. The government changes with time but the courts work as per law. Being a judge is not as easy as it seems. Stop talking against us. You have to come in these same courts if it’s not your government next time. You will not appear before any Australian court.”

“PPP did not say a word after whatever happened with them. You also have the same respect as it is of someone else. We carry no agenda. Keep working according to your plan but refrain from giving statements against judiciary,” directed the judge.“Don’t you know that Nawaz Sharif was hit by a shoe, stones were pelted on Bilawal in Karachi and ink was hurled at Khawaja Asif? You are a former premier, try saving and rectifying the system. Although this matter is not relevant but it is necessary to speak all this,” said the judge.

“On Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification, you said that he is your Prime Minister. Should you have said this?” the judge inquired.Breaking: LHC Allows Former PM Abbasi To Contest ElectionsEarlier on June 29, Lahore High Court allowed former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to contest General elections 2018 from his home constituency of NA-57, Murree.
