LAHORE: A petition was filed in the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday to make the United States of America a party in the ongoing Raymond Davis immunity case, DawnNews reported.

The petitioner also stated that the court should issue a notice to the US Ambassador to Pakistan in the case.

Petitioner Advocate Azhar Siddique has filed three different petitions in the LHC.

One petition requests the court to prevent the immunity issue from being heard in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) as the case was already being heard in the LHC.

The petition also said that as the United States did not recognise the jurisdiction of the ICJ, hence the international court should not hear the Davis immunity case.

The petition further said that news reports pertaining to Davis' connections with the CIA should also be included in the case against him.
