Supreme Court (SC) Monday discharged the intra-court appeal filed by real estate tycoon Malik Riaz in contempt of court case over an objection.
Malik Riaz has been asked to re-submit his appeal along with the apex court’s ruling.
Earlier, Advocate on Record Raja Abdul Ghafoor submitted to the court the intra-court appeal against the court’s decision to frame charges against Riaz in contempt of court case.
It is pertinent to note here that the appeal was filed under new Contempt of Court law 2012.
It should be mentioned here that during last hearing, the court decided to indict Malik Riaz in the Monday’s hearing.
In the last hearing, the three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Shakirullah Jan, refused Riaz’s plea seeking exemption from court appearance and ruled that he is bound to appear before the court until a decision to the contrary comes.
