Lahore: A Lahore court on Monday extended physical remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Mian Javed Latif for two more days in case pertaining to defaming institutions.
The Judicial Judge on duty in the Model Town Court heard the Javed Latif case, which made speeches against state institutions.
The police sent the PML-N leader to the court before completing the four days before the hearing.
The prosecutor said during the proceedings that it had completed three tests including the polygraph and requested that his remand period be extended for further investigation.
PML-N MNA personally put forward his argument and said that if he remains silent about the loss of this country, everyone will be happy. He said that his lawyers have withdrawn their qualification certificates, and the court can extend their remand period as needed.
After hearing the arguments, the court extended the physical remand for two more days.
In April, police took Javed Latif into custody after a sessions court dismissed his bail in a case pertaining to allegedly defaming state institutions.
Latif left the courtroom before the pronouncement of the verdict. The Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) arrested him near Saggian Pul after the court dismissed his bail plea, according to his lawyer.
Previously, when the Lahore High Court (LHC) heard Mian Javed Latif’s request to dismiss the case, it had emphasized that those who opposed Pakistan would not receive any relief. Muhammad Qasim Khan condemned Javed Latif and stated in his speech that the leader of the Manila National Liberation Movement should leave Pakistan and acquire the nationality of any other country. He confirmed that parliamentarians should hold themselves accountable.
