The Supreme Court of Pakistan suspended Peoples Party MNA Farahnaz Ispahani's membership of the National Assembly while hearing the dual nationality case on Friday.
During the proceedings, certain documents were presented to the court, confirming allegations that Farahnaz Ispahani is a dual nationality holder. According to the document Farahnaz is also an American National.
The supreme court ruled, that her membership from the National Assembly will be revoked on account of not disclosing her dual nationality status to the Election Commission.
During today’s hearing Senator Rehamn Malik’s lawyer prayed the court on behalf of his client, for an extension in deadline to present the certificate of Malik revoking his British citizenship.
It should be noted that Farahnaz Ispahani is a prominent PPP figure and the wife of Pakistan’s former ambassador to US, Hussain Haqqani.
