ISLAMABAD - The Lahore High Court has issued a notice to Dawn journalist Cyril Almeida in the case of treason against former Prime Ministers Nawaz Sharif and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
According to Dunya News, a notice was issued to both Almeida and Sharif. They had failed to appear before a three-member bench.
The case is about Sharif’s interview to Almeida in which he reportedly admitted that the terrorists who participated in 26/11 were Pakistanis.
The case also impugns Abbasi. He allegedly disclosed minutes of the National Security Council’s meeting to Nawaz.
On Abbasi’s request, the case was deferred until September 10.
