Shehbaz withdraws petitions seeking implementation of court order, contempt of court

Shehbaz withdraws petitions seeking implementation of court order, contempt of court
May 24, 2021

LAHORE (92 News) - The Lahore High Court (LHC) approved Monday PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif’s request to withdraw his petitions regarding court of contempt and seeking implementation of a court order that gave him one-time permission to go abroad for medical check-up.

Justice Ali Baqar Najafi heard the civil miscellaneous application. Advocate Amjad Pervaiz, on behalf of Shehbaz Sharif, argued that his client wanted to withdraw the main petition against the decision of placing his name on the blacklist, and civil miscellaneous application filed for implementation of the court order that gave him one-time permission to go abroad.

Shehbaz had petitioned the court asking it to order the government to implement its earlier order, which allowed him to travel to London. The court had allowed him to travel on May 7 but he was off-loaded the next day at the airport by the Federal Investigation Agency.

The deputy attorney general raised objections over Shehbaz’s decision to withdraw the petition, and requested the court that the government be allowed to file its response. He asked the court for some time to respond, but Shehbaz’s lawyer said that the hearing will prevent them from challenging separately the ECL matter.

The court decided that continuing with the hearing is unnecessary.
