Gunman shoots at home of judge who barred Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif

The court also rejected an application filed by Advocate A K Dogar on behalf of Sharif requesting that Justice Naqvi recuse himself from the full bench.

He said the bench also dismissed Sharifs petition challenging the jurisdiction of the court in this matter.

"PEMRA has also been directed by the LHC to strictly monitor TV channels with regard to airing any anti-judiciary speeches/remarks and submit a report after 15 days", a court official told PTI.

The Avenfield properties reference is among three filed against Nawaz and his family by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) previous year on the directions of the Supreme Court. Sharif has dismissed the corruption charges as politically motivated. The three-member bench ordered Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz to appear in person or via their counsel before the court during the next hearing.

About 27 miscellaneous contempt petitions were filed in the Lahore HC against Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, ousted PM Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and 14 other lawmakers since the disqualification of Sharif in the Panama Papers case verdict.

Russia: Chemical weapons inspection delayed due to West's airstrikes
The targeted sites were largely empty and were all said to be facilities for chemical weapons storage or production. In the case of chlorine, it is permitted to possess it for civilian use, but not to use it as a weapon.

Commenting on a NAB references against him over construction of Raiwind Road, he said references should also be filed against him for building motorway and carrying out nuclear tests.

Sharif said patriots have became traitors today, adding that he wanted all to get along.

Nawaz and Maryam skipped the last two hearings of the case as they were unable to leave Lahore due to weather conditions.

The petitioner further said their tirade was going unnoticed.

Justice Naqvi observed that whereas Article 19-A of the Constitution guarantees freedom of expression and the right to "fair criticism" to every citizen, the right is conditional to law and regulation. "Instead of taking action, Pemra sought advice from judiciary".
