The letter, filed by Advocate Hamid Khan and dated August 2, said: “Our client has high respect and regard for the judiciary as an institution and would continue to do so in the future.

In a latest development, the ex-CJ has rejected the reply of Imran against his defamation notice.

The defamation case will be filed in the first week of October, said lawyer of the Mr. Chaudhary.
