ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court Monday issued a contempt of court notice against the printer, publisher, and reporter of The News for the story "Panama JIT ‘doesn’t find PM guilty,’ but his sons".
The story by Ahmad Noorani (pictured) appeared in the paper the day the JIT submitted its report to the apex court.
Terming the story wrong and baseless, the SC issued a contempt of court notice to Mir Shakeel ur Rehman, owner of the Jang Group, and Noorani. The Jang Group has been asked to submit its reply in seven days.
DawnNews reported that the bench took a strict stand against the newspaper for publishing material it said was contrary to actual JIT proceedings over the past 60 days.
The court also asked who hacked the social media accounts of the JIT members.
