The Supreme Court on Wednesday accepted the unconditional apology of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Faisal Raza Abidi for using defamatory and inappropriate language against Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar, as mentioned in a first information report (FIR) filed against him prior to his arrest.
A three-member bench, headed by Justice Azmat Saeed accepted the apology and advised Abidi to exercise caution and said that the court has also always done the same. “We are not afraid of criticism; it is tolerated in the whole world but the criticism should be within limits,” Justice Saeed said.
During the hearing, Abidi’s lawyer told the court that the PPP leader spent 70 days in jail and has realised his mistake.
