LAHORE- A constitutional petition has been moved in the Supreme Court of Pakistan to seek contempt of court action against the former Federal Minister for Defence Production Abdul Qayyum Jatoi for passing derogatory remarks against Pakistan Army and the Judiciary at a press conference on Saturday last. The petition has been filed by advocate Muhammad Safdar that also seek action against the respondent under Article 6 of the Constitution for high treason and his disqualification as member of the National Assembly under Article 62 of the Constitution. The petitioner contends that the press conference held by the said Minister wherein he made allegedly defamatory remarks against the two state institutions, was a part of the government policy and taking action on it, not only he might be punished for contempt of the court but also a reference might be made to the Election Commission to unseat him as member of the Parliament. The petitioner said the respect and dignity of both the army and the judiciary was highly valuable for every citizen and what the minister allegedly said, had hurt every body. It may be recalled that hours after what Mr Jatoi, who was elected as PPP MNA in the last election, had said, the prime minister called him to Islamabad and obtained his resignation after he failed to give satisfactory answer to what he had stated.
