Zardari dual office case: LHC adjourns hearing to Oct 31

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday heard the contempt of court petition against President Asif Ali Zardari for not relinquishing the political office of PPP co-chairman.
A larger bench of the LHC headed by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial heard the case.
During the hearing, Advocate Wasim Sajjad, representing the government, said that petitions were being filed against the head of state as if he was an ordinary man.
He moreover requested the court for more time, adding that, he was not employing delaying tactics.
In his remarks, Justice Bandial said that the head of state was not an ordinary citizen. The bench said the matter involved the issue of contempt of court and that it would rule over it on the basis of merit.
Also during the hearing, Sajjad argued that the president’s office was political as he was elected president after a consensus among the political parties in the parliament.
Subsequently, the hearing was adjourned to Oct 31.

    Wasim Sajjad advocating for Zardari!!!! amazing how people are sold so easily.

    This case doesnt have any value now as the president has almost completed his term! Why courts are wasting time and money of taxpayers?

    If a simple case can take you 4 years to decide then there is fundamentally wrong with justice system!
