Tareen Disqualification Case: SC says Leased Land Is Still Taxable

Published on October 12, 2017 by fahmidah

The Supreme Court resumed hearing on Thursday the petition filed by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Hanif Abbasi seeking the disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen today.

Sikandar Bashir Mohmand, Tareen’s counsel, is presenting his arguments to the three-member bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar.

During the court proceeding, Tareen’s counsel said that the court should tell where his client lied in his nomination papers.

In response to the question, the chief justice said that Tareen didn’t disclose his ownership of an agriculture land. He added that the counsel should read Representation of People Act’s Section-12 to know what action can be taken on misdeclaration.
