SC accepts apologies from Jang, The News representatives for 'misreporting' CJP's remarksArchive
The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday accepted the unconditional apologies tendered by representatives of two news publications for 'misreporting' Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar's remarks yesterday.
Urdu newspaper Jang and English daily The News had in their lead stories on Wednesday reported that CJP Nisar, while hearing a suo motu case of illegal construction in Banigala, had "remarked that the current government lacked capability and planning".
The top judge had distanced himself from those remarks, explaining that the court had been referring to the Capital Development Authority in the Banigala case, not the government, and issued notices to the publications.
