ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court rejected on Tuesday Pakistan Muslim Nawaz (PML-N) leader Talal Chaudhry’s apology in the contempt case.

The Chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar was heading the larger bench hearing the Intra court appeal in the contempt of court case against former minister of state Talal Ch.

The CJP asked Talal’s lawyer Kamran Murtaza, as to whom did he (Talal) refer PCO judges and to whom he wanted to throw out adding that shouldn’t we increase the retribution against him.

To which, Kamaran said that Talal has confessed his mistake and want to apologize before the court on the matter.

The top judge after playing the clip in the court, asked Talal to come on the rostrum and explain his position.

Talal informed the court that he talked about PCO judges, not the sitting judges of the court.

The counsel of Ch said he is unable to explain his stance to which CJP rejected his apology.

The Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP), Mian Saqib Nisar took suo motu notice of the anti-judiciary speeches by the PML-N leader, Talal Chaudhry.

Chaudhry was seen launching a tirade against judiciary at the ruling party’s rally in Jaranwala where PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz also criticised Supreme Court and judges of superior judiciary.

During his speech at PML-N’s rally in Jarranwala in February this year, Chaudhry had said: “There was an era when the Kaabah was full of idols. Today, the judiciary, which is the country’s highest institution, is also full of PCO [Provisional Constitution Order] idols.”

“Mian Nawaz Sharif, throw them out, throw him out of the court. They will not give justice but will continue their injustices,” Talal had said in the rally.
