Federal cabinet approves withdrawal of Sharif family’s jail trial notification

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has constituted a full bench to hear petitions pertaining to contempt of court against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz.
The LHC Chief Justice Muhammad Yawar Ali formed the new bench, which will be headed by Justice Mazhar Ali Akbar Naqvi.
The bench also comprises Justice Shahid Mobeen and Justice Atir Mehmood.
Several petitions contend that the PML-N leadership had been making derogatory speeches against Supreme Court judges since the verdict of Nawaz’s disqualification in the Panama Papers case.
