LHC issues notices to Nawaz, Maryam in case seeking ban on PML-N leaders’ speeches

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday issued notices to PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) seeking replies on a petition seeking a ban on speeches by PML-N leaders.
The petition, mentioning links of multiple videos of Nawaz and Maryam, argues that the father-daughter duo has been making contemptuous speeches in political rallies against the judiciary. Pemra has also failed to act against them, it adds.
The petition argues that Nawaz Sharif has instigated people against judiciary by announcing a rebellion against it, therefore, the court should impose a ban on his contemptuous speeches and those of other PML-N leaders.
Justice Shahid Kareem of the LHC asked the Sharifs and Pemra to submit their replies by March 15.
