Imran Khan: New contempt bill violates constitution

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has termed the Contempt of Court bill 2012 as being a violation of the constitution and democracy.

Speaking to media prior to his departure for Gujranwala, Khan said by enacting legislation against contempt of court, the power of the courts was being diminished and criminals were being protected.

Khan added that people were frustrated because of loadshedding and now the decision to reopen the NATO supply had embarrassed them. “The US did not listen to any of Pakistan’s demands nor was any importance given to parliament’s recommendations,” Khan said.
