Disqualification Petition Against Zardari, Fawad, Court Seeks Legal Assistance

Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Chief justice remarked why would a court intervene in political matters in the presence of the parliament.

Fawad Chaudhry’s lawyer and brother Faisal Chaudhry told the court that he was not prepared for giving the arguments as he did not find the case file.

Justice Athar Minallah remarked that he would give a verdict by making it an exemplary case while he also sought legal assistance from lawyers on the legal point.

Chaudhry’s counsel pleaded with the court to give him two months for the preparation. To this, the IHC chief justice remarked that only one month will be granted to the lawyer.

He added that the court will not provide any opportunity to further adjourn the hearing.
