KARACHI: A human rights lawyer Rana Faizul Hasan filed a petition in the Sindh High Court on Tuesday seeking the disqualification of provincial information minister Sharjeel Memon, DawnNews reported.
Hasan appealed to the court that Memon should be disqualified and his provincial assembly membership be suspended as he was guilty of contempt of court under Article 63 of the Constitution.
The petition also included the names of the provincial law minister and the provincial and federal governments among others.
Hasan was of the view that judiciary was a highly esteemed institution and should be respected by all other institutions. Anyone who violated the court’s sanctity should be penalised for contempt of court.
The lawyer moreover said that Memon had chanted insulting slogans on the floor of the Sindh Assembly over which he was supported by other members in the assembly.
