‘I swear of not threatening any state institution,’ says Nehal Hashmi after SC’s notice
ISLAMABAD - After the Supreme Court took notice of threatening speech, PML-N's Senator Nehal Hasmhi said he swore that he did not extended threats of dire consequences to any state institution in his speech regarding Panama case.

During the hearing of a suo moto case against him, Hashmi stated before the court that he was fasting and he could not think of threatening any state institutions.

‘I beg forgiveness from Allah Almighty and judiciary’ noted Nehal Hashmi.

Contempt Notice

Today, the court conducted hearing of the case and served a contempt of court notice on the PML-N's senator for his threatening speech that surfaced on Wednesday.

The apex court sought Hashmi’s reply regarding the contempt of court notice by Monday besides appointing Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf as a prosecutor.

During today’s hearing, Justice Ejaz Afzal remarked that the top judiciary knew what it was doing adding that the Joint Investigation Team currently investigating offshore assets of Sharif family was formulated by the supreme court.

‘No one can scare us’ remarked justice Ejaz Afzal.

Justice Aijaz Ul Ahsan expressed that the members of cabinets issued threats during the proceedings of the Panama case as well.

Nehal Hashmi’s Outrageous Speech

Nehal Hashmi came into the limelight on Wednesday when a video surfaced in which he can be seen threatening judiciary in a veiled reference.

The video that went viral on the internet shows a disgruntled Senator Nehal warning rivals and ‘some honourable officials associated with top institutions’ of dire consequences if they continued their concerns with the accountability of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

“Whoever is asking for accountability will retire tomorrow and we will deal with them,” insinuated Hashmi in a veiled threat to the top judiciary currently probing the ruling Sharif family in the backdrop of Panama papers.
