LAHORE An election tribunal of Lahore High Court on Friday handed over record of University of Azad Jammu Kashmir in relation to degree of PML-N MNA Malik Riaz to local commission for its verification. The local commission was directed to submit its report by July 14 after going through the record submitted by legal advisor of the university. The tribunal is hearing an election petition of PPP leader and Chairman Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) Asif Hashmi against Malik Riaz, who was elected MNA from NA-118, Lahore. Hashmi accused Malik Riaz of keeping a fake BA degree and sought his disqualification under Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution. Petition disposed of The Lahore High Court on Friday disposed of a petition which prayed for court direction to the police to register a fraud case against Amir Yar Waran, a former PPP MNA from NA-184, Bahawalpur, after he had resigned the membership for having a fake degree. The petition was filed by Muhammad Arshad Pirzada, a voter of the constituency, saying Supreme Court had declared degree of the MNA bogus, however, he resigned from the office before announcement of apex courts decision. Petitioners counsel stated that resignation did not undo the criminal act of the MNA so registration of a case of fraud might be allowed against him in the light of observations made by the apex court. The LHC, however, allowed the petitioner to approach election commission for the redressal of his grievance and disposed of the petition. Hearing of plea deferred An election tribunal of Lahore High Court on Friday adjourned to July 23 the hearing of a petition which challenged the academic degrees of PML-N provincial minister Chaudhry Abdul Ghafoor. The minister had filed a civil miscellaneous application saying the petition against him was not maintainable as the Higher Education Commission, Punjab University, and Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education had verified his degrees and certificates. Counsel for the petitioner on Friday sought time from court to file a rejoinder to the application of the minister. The petition was filed by Rana Muhammad Tariq, a defeated candidate of PPP from PP-161, Lahore. Petitioner had taken the plea that the FA, BA and MA degrees held by Ch Ghafoor were bogus as such the respondent was liable to be disqualified under Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution. Plea seeks arrest of blasphemers An application has been moved in the Lahore High Court to seek arrest of those accused persons involved in blasphemous caricatures through Interpol. The plea has been moved by senior advocate Muhammad Azhar Siddique on whose earlier filed petition, the court had passed order for registration of a case against those involved in the Facebook competition of profane cartoons. The FIR stand sealed with the Civil Lines Police Station. The petitioner also prayed for disclosing the same on the basis of UN Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and others.
