ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday adjourned the contempt of court case against Minister of State for Interior Talal Chaudhry.

A three-member bench of the top court headed by Justice Ijazul Ahsan heard the case against the state minister.

In today’s proceedings, Kamran Murtaza, the counsel of Talal Chaudhry appealed the court to provide a copy of the CD in which his client had made derogatory remarks against the judiciary.

The court while allowing the lawyer a copy of the CD, directed the additional attorney general to provide him with the material.

The court while granting exemption to the state minister from appearance adjourned the hearing as till March 8.

On Feb 24, State Minister for Interior Talal Chaudhry had submitted a preliminary reply in the contempt of court case.

In the reply, he stated that he had neither defied the court order nor hampered justice. “I respect the Supreme Court and can never think of ridiculing or insulting the court,” he added.

He said that the statements were reported out of context. “The speech translation is presented in a negative way to create sensation.

The CJP had also given his observation on the out of context reporting,” he said.
