Pakistan Protection Act 2014 challenged in IHC



ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Jamshed Dasti, an independent lawmaker from Muzaffargarh, has challenged the Protection of Pakistan Act 2014 in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) saying that the anti-terror law is contradictory to Article 4, 9 and 10 of the Constitution.

In a petition filed in the IHC on Monday, the member of the National Assembly said that the law can be used to settle personal scores and political victimization of opponents.

Dasti also said that the procedure to obtain a suspects remand defined in the act is not appropriate and requested the court to ban the Pakistan Protection Act 2014.
