SC rejects Hussain Nawaz's plea to stop recording of JIT proceedings
Supreme Court has rejected the plea of Prime Minister's son Hussain Nawaz for stopping JIT probing Panama Papers case from video-recording of the proceedings.
In his petition, Hussain Nawaz had also prayed the court to form a commission to investigate the leak of his photo, while he was sitting in the investigation room.
In its detailed judgment announced today, the three-member bench headed by Justice Ijaz Afzal said video recordings are only used to prepare transcript of the statements.
However, the verdict said that until the law is amended, the video recordings will not be shown in the court-room. It also said that video recordings cannot be presented as evidence before the court.
