The petition to hold former information minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Fawad Chaudhry in contempt of court for making “anti-judiciary” statements were denied by the Lahore High Court (LHC).
The plea, which Justice Shujaat Ali Khan heard, was reportedly ruled to be inadmissible because Attorney Shahid Rana attempted to hold Fawad Chaudhry in contempt of court for making anti-judiciary statements.
The court decided at the hearing that it could not begin legal action over political utterances that criticized decisions.
Earlier, Attorney Saleemullah filed a complaint with the IHC against Fawad Chaudhry for making disparaging comments against the judiciary on social media.
According to the lawsuit, PTI leader criticized the judiciary after Imran Khan, a former prime minister, threatened a female judge named Zeba Chaudhry.
The applicant asked the court to declare PTI leader in contempt of court and punish him in accordance with the law.
