New developments reported in case of Maryam Nawaz leaked video against Judge Arshad Malik
*ISLAMABAD : **New developments have been reported in case of Maryam Nawaz leaked video against Judge Arshad Malik of Accountability Court. *
Acting Islamabad High Court (IHC) Chief Justice Amir Farooq on Tuesday met with Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa to deliberate over the ‘leaked’ video presented by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz.
The meeting between the two senior judges lasted for over 30 minutes.
The video, presented by the PML-N leadership as proof, alleged that accountability court judge Arshad Malik had found “no evidence of corruption against deposed premier Nawaz Sharif”.
Maryam had further claimed that the accountability court judge had been “blackmailed into finding her father Nawaz Sharif guilty”.
Judge Malik also met with Justice Farooq on Monday.
On July 7, judge Malik refuted the PML-N’s claims that he was blackmailed into jailing former prime minister Nawaz, maintaining that the video revealed by the party as evidence was fake and it was, in fact, the PML-N leadership that tried to bribe and pressure him to rule in favour of its supreme leader.
In a press statement, the judge said his verdict against Nawaz was free of any bias and he had not acted under any sort of pressure.
