Pak court issues notices to Sharif, aides on contempt petition

The legal woes of Pakistan\'s ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family mounted on Wednesday when a top court issued notices to them for allegedly committing contempt of court during a rally in Punjab province last week.

The Lahore High Court issued notices to the federal government, Election Commission of Pakistan and the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) to submit their reply by February 14.

Petitioner Amina Malik told the court that Sharif, his daughter Maryam, son-in-law Capt (retd.) Muhammad Safdar, Interior Minister Talal Chaudhry and Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah verbally attacked the Supreme Court judges on last Saturday s rally in Jaranwala (some 150-km from Lahore) for disqualifying Sharif from the office of prime minister.

She said Maryam made the most adverse remarks about the five judges who handed down disqualification to Sharif.

Maryam in her address had said: \"The SC judges had asked Imran Khan (cricketer-turned-politician and Pakistan Tehreek- e-Insaf chairman) to file a petition so that they could oust Nawaz Sharif as he (Khan) had failed to make that happen through protest movement. The judges acted as lawyers of Imran Khan and they were party against Nawaz Sharif.\" 

The petitioner further said Sharif and Maryam had constantly belittling the SC judges since last July and their tirade was going unnoticed.
