Babar Awan: A Fake Doctor

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) has announced to indict Babar Awan contempt case on March 20, Geo News reported.

A two-Judge bench comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan and Justice Athar Saeed issued the order.

The SC on March 1st had reserved its verdict over a contempt issue pertained to addressing a press conference at Press Information Department by Babar Awan, former law minister and PPP vice president, after December 1 initial order of the SC on memo matter.

During previous hearing Barrister Syed Ali Zafar, counsel for Babar Awan, had submitted a written reply with the bench saying that his client Dr Babar Awan, always held the judiciary in the highest esteem and would never even think or imagine of uttering anything which was derogatory to any court whatsoever.

He had apprised the bench that his client being a senior advocate of the Supreme Court firmly believed that if he scandalized the court in any manner, he was in fact defaming himself as the courts and lawyers were two wheels of the same chariot and disrespect of one would lead to the loss of other.

Clarifying his position, the counsel said that on December 1, 2011, his client along with other office bearers of the PPP, attended the conference against the leadership of Pakistan Muslim League-N headed by Nawaz Sharif, which was a political opponent party.
