SC to announce verdict in Tallal Chaudry contempt case tomorrow
The former lawmaker has been ordered by the apex court to ensure his presence in court during tomorrow's proceedings, stirring concerns that he might be arrested in much the same fashion as his fellow Nehal Hashmi.
The court had reserved the verdict last month on July 11.
The top court had initiated contempt proceedings against Chaudry on account of "derogatory and contemptuous speeches/statements" with regard to the court, according to a notification issued on February 2.
In his response to the contempt notice, Chaudhry wrote that scandalizing the court or doing anything that tends to bring the court into ‘hatred, ridicule or contempt’ is ‘not even the last thing on the respondent’s mind.’
