Hanif Abbasi: SC rejects s plea against swift trial in ephedrine case

The Supreme Court on Tuesday turned down an application filed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi beside a high court order leading to arrange the ephedrine case against him by July 21.

He added that the Lahore High Court’s Rawalpindi bench, on the petitioner Shahid Orakzai’s request, directed the lower court for conducting the swift trial in the case and ordered it to conclude the case on July 21.

Murtaza argued that the high court has no authority to re-schedule the trial date, to which, Justice Ijazul Ahsan remarked that in fact, under Article 203 of the Constitution, the LHC has the authority for it.
