ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Terming a news published by English daily The News International as ‘direct contempt of court’, the Supreme Court of Pakistan has issued notices to the owner of Geo News and editor-in-chief of The News International Mir Shakilur Rehman and journalist Ahmad Noorani on Monday.
The notice was taken on a news titled “Panama JIT ‘doesn’t find PM guilty,’ but his sons”. Urdu version of the news was also published in Roznama Jang.
While quoting the sources close to the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the Panama Papers case against Sharif family, The News International stated that the JIT has not held Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif responsible of any wrongdoing.
“The JIT has cast some doubts about the prime minister in absence of any reasonable evidence but at no place has held the Prime Minister responsible of doing any illegal thing,” the paper reported.
