ISLAMABAD : – Supreme Court (SC) is all set to indict Federal Minister for Privatisation Daniyal Aziz in contempt of court case today (Tuesday).
The case was initiated against the minister on February 2 over his alleged anti-judiciary speeches and remarks made during television shows.
The SC bench had stated — in prima facie — Danyial Aziz has been found guilty of contempt of court as per TV recordings and newspapers’ clippings dated 9th of June-2017, 15th and 31st of Dec-2017.
In his reply submitted in the court on Monday, Daniyal Aziz blamed media for misrepresentation of his statements and out of context reporting.
Aziz claimed that he has always respected the courts and talks within the limits of ethical codes on sub judice cases. He said he tried neither to dishonour the constitutional institutes nor become an obstacle in the judicial process and justice.
Reasoning that wrong reporting always leads to negative results, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader called for the implementation of the code of conduct for media.
