Islamabad (Staff Report): Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved its verdict on Hussain Nawaz's petition challenging the recording of Joint Investigation Team (JIT) proceedings.
The three-member special implementation bench heard the response of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s son, Hussain, on the JIT report over ‘impediments’ faced by it as well as the leaking of Hussain’s interrogation picture.
Hassan's counsel Khawaja Harris reiterated his client’s plea that the JIT proceedings should not be recorded on video.
Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan remarked that recordings are carried out so as to maintain accurate transcripts, adding that the facts of the case are not being affected by the procedure.
Justice Azmat Saeed Sheikh questioned the petitioner as to what damage the leaking of his picture had done to him? He further commented that the recording of proceedings will help him more than it can hurt him.
When Justice Azmat asked the attorney general (AG) if he has read the JIT’s report submitted in court on Monday, the AG replied in the negative.
The court then directed the AG to examine the JIT’s complaints in detail and inform the bench at 11am on Thursday.
