LHC rejects petitions to initiate treason case against Nawaz Sharif
Published at: 4 days ago


Lahore: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday rejected pleas urging to launch treason case against ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif over his statements regarding 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Justice Shams Mahmood Mirza on Wednesday reserved the verdict regarding maintainability of the petitions filed by General Secretary Pakistan Awami Tehreek Khurram Nawaz Gandapur and another by Chairman Pakistan Zindabad Party Aftab Virk Advocate.

The high court has directed the petitioners to move the right forum in this regard.

The petitioners alleged that the statement given by Nawaz was against national security and state institutions and pleaded the court to start high treason proceedings against him under Article 6 of the Constitution

The controversial statement was immediately taken up by Indian media, which termed the Nawaz Sharif’s remarks as a confession of Pakistan’s role in the Mumbai attacks that left 166 people dead.
