Drone attacks case: LHC adjourns hearing till Nov 28


The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday adjourned the hearing of a petition filed against US drone attacks to November 28.
The petition filed by the Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) was heard by LHC Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial.
The petition states that despite a resolution passed by the parliament, drone attacks have been violating Pakistan’s sovereignty.
The petition also stated that drone attacks had cost thousands of innocent Pakistani lives and requested that the court must attempt to prevent them through its orders.
During the hearing, the court was informed that A K Dogar, the lawyer representing the petitioner, could not appear for the hearing due to a prior commitment at the Supreme Court.
The court, subsequently, adjourned the hearing to Nov 28 and summoned the counsels representing the parties to the case to present their arguments.
