LHC issues notice to Nawaz Sharif
LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Friday issued a notice to PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif to appear in court on February 15.
The notice has been issued following a petition filed by a journalist, Shahid Aurakzai, with the Election Tribunal of the Lahore High Court.
The petitioner challenged the eligibility of Sharif to contest by-election in NA-123.
The petitioner argued that as Nawaz Sharif has not yet withdrawn his nomination papers and because of his alleged involvement in attack on the Supreme Court in November 1997 he is not eligible to contest the by-election.
