LAHORE A full bench of the Lahore High Court on Monday dismissed a contempt of court petition earlier moved against speakers of Sindh and Khyber PK provincial assemblies for passing a resolution in favour of the dual-office of President Asif Ali Zardari. The bench, headed by Chief Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry, observed that resolutions in question were passed under the constitutional authority that could not be called in question before the court of law. However, the resolutions passed by the assemblies could not affect the proceedings of the court as they were not binding on it. Therefore, the decision on the pending writ petitions would be taken on merit of the case, the CJ further observed. Justice Iftikhar Hussain Chaudhry, Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Ijazul Ahsan are the other judges on the bench which is hearing three constitutional petitions against holding of dual-office by President Zardari.
