LAHORE: Lahore High Court (LHC) has overturned action on contempt of court plea filed by Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq in Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Abdul Aleem Khan.

Justice Ayesha A Malik announced this decision on petition filed by Aleem Khan to challenge Ayaz Sadiq’s plea of contempt of court against him. The LHC banned action on the contempt of court plea.

Lawyer of Aleem Khan, Anees Hashmi said Sadiq had approached ECP over allegations of submission of falsified affidavit by Aleem regarding transferring of votes from constituency NA-122 in by-elections and contempt of court.

Hashmi said the falsified affidavit had not violated any judicial order, therefore, the contempt of court filed on ground of the affidavit should be shunned.

Deputy attorney general said submission of fake affidavit was not contempt of court.

Sadiq’s lawyer raised objection on LHC’s hearing on the issue of ECP. He said the plea should be dismissed because LHC had no right to hold hearing on ECP’s issue.
