ISLAMABAD – The accountability court judge Arshad Malick has rejected the notion of any secret meeting between him and the DG NAB .
He was responding regarding meeting with the Director-General of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Rawalpindi, remarking that for the media, it might be a huge issue, however, it was not for us.
The judge was pressed by the counsel for Nawaz Sharif, Khawaja Haris as the hearing into the Al-Azizia reference began on Friday, however, the judge observed that he had summoned DG NAB Irfan Mangi the day before yesterday, however, Mangi left after waiting for some time which is why the meeting took place yesterday.
The judge remarked that he had summoned Irfan Mangi in an official capacity and did not speak about the cases lodged against the Sharif family.
‘The only mention of the case in our conversation was that I could not meet him the day before yesterday owing to an engagement,’ he observed.
The remarks came after Khawaja Haris cited media reports about the meeting and argued that such situations should have been refrained from.
