14/10/29  LAHORE: – Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) MNA from NA-118 Malik Riaz has been fined Rs. 10,000 for demanding yet another date from election tribunal instead of making arguments.

As election tribunal judge Kazim Malik started hearing the case, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) candidate Hamid Zaman’s lawyer pleaded that inquiry commission’s report has proved that PML-N MNA Malik Riaz won the election through rigging and therefore, his notification should be declared invalid.

Instead of making arguments for his client Malik Riaz, the lawyer demanded yet another date and was fined Rs. 10,000 by the tribunal. Tribunal has fined Malik Riaz a total of Rs. 40,000 so far for demanding dates.
