Asma questions transparency in Arsalan case
04 September, 2012
LAHORE: Veteran lawyer Asma Jahangir has said that there were numerous reservations and questions with regards to the Arsalan Iftikhar case. She proposed to call a Scotland Yard team to probe the case if country's institutions were not trustworthy for judiciary.
While talking to media at Lahore High Court Bar Association, Asma said that the Supreme Court was not meeting the requirements of delivery of justice in the case of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry's son, Arsalan Iftikhar.
She further said that if there were any doubts in National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) investigating team, then the team could have been changed.
Asma said that she was not expecting transparent investigation by Federal Tax Ombudsman Dr Shoaib Suddle, who was appointed as one-man commission by the apex court to investigate Arsalan's case. She alleged that the court wanted to facilitate the investigations from its favourite because Suddle had close ties with Arsalan.
