IHC warns PTI protestors against staging sit-in on motorways

ISLAMABAD: Hearing the petition filed by local businessmen against PTI’s protests, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) Thursday warned against sit-in on key national highways (motorways) as it disrupts commercial activity and transportation of citizens in the federal capital.

Businessmen, in their petition, argued that the protests will bring activity in Islamabad to a halt.

During the course of the hearing, IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq said those who wanted to set up a protest rally had a right to do it, but without violating the basic rights of ordinary citizens.

“However, no one has the right to announce a sit-in on the motorway and then block it,” the judge said.

The petitioner’s counsel said that the containers parked on the roads were causing difficulties for commuters.
