LAHORE - The Lahore High Court on Friday issued a notice to President Zardari for simultaneously holding the offices of co-chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and that of the president in violation of an earlier order of the full bench of the court. LHC Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial issued the notice through the president’s principal secretary. The CJ also decided that a larger bench will hear the case from next hearing as a constitutional and legal issue has been raised in the petition. AK Dogar, the counsel of the petitioner, submitted that the court should summon Zardari to explain his position, just as the Supreme Court called former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in contempt case. At this, the CJ said the court had issued a notice to the principal secretary and it would decide the future course of action after the submission of reply by principal secretary. The CJ added that the court may summon President Zardari if it so required. Bandial said that the office of President is respectable and the LHC full bench hoped that President Zardari would disassociate himself from political activities, but this has not happened. The court will resume hearing on June 27.
