LAHORE The Lahore High Court Chief Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry Friday dismissed a contempt of court petition filed earlier against the former PPP Secretary Information Fauzia Wahab for passing a statement in favour of diplomatic immunity to double murder accused, Raymond Davis. The court dismissed the petition of Ilmuddin Ghazi advocate, on the plea that merely political statements cannot influence the court proceedings. Therefore the court did not find merit in the petition, hence dismissed. The petitioner had sought action against Fauzia contending that matter relating to the diplomatic immunity is pending before this court and her statement amounts to influencing the court proceedings, which was based on malafide intention on her part.
