Contempt of court case: IHC orders Rana Shamim to submit affidavit to AGP


ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday directed the former chief justice of Gilgit Baltistan Rana Shamim to file an affidavit in the contempt case against the Pakistan Attorney General.

Rana Shamim’s lawyer Latif Afridi today asked the court to adjourn the case.

Attorney General Khalid Javed pleaded to the court to direct Rana Shamim to submit his affidavit and the list of his witnesses. “The proceedings will move ahead after his statement on oath and the witnesses list,” Khalid Javed said.

The bench directed Rana Shamim to submit his written statement and the list of witnesses to the Attorney General before the next hearing of the case.

The court accepted defense attorneys’ arguments and adjourned the case until March 7.
