Meesha Shafi’s defamation case on Ali Zafar heard by Supreme Court!
After rejection of her joint witness appeal in LHC, she headed to Sc to listen her defamation case and the plea had been accepted by the court yesterday! A three-member bench headed by Justice Ijazul Ahsan was hearing the case. The presiding judge asked Shafi’s counsel under which law he wanted the testimonies of all the witnesses to be recorded together.
Meesha Shafi’s lawyer put infront of the court what actually happened in the jamming session!
Justice Ahsan questioned the lawyer about the fact that has he ever observed joint remarks of witnesses and examine them later on? “There is no such precedent in my 30-year judicial experience,” the judge remarked.
But Shafi’s lawyer maintained that he could cite several past court judgements to support his client’s appeal.“You cannot because there are zero court precedents,” Justice Ahsan responded.
“A court judgement is not some divine script,” Justice Ahsan replied, further elaborate dthat judgements “can also be wrong”.The lawyer representing Zafar informed the bench the statement of one out of 11 witnesses has already been recorded.The court adjourned the hearing of the case until next week.
