SC disposes of petitions concerning the video scandal of former Judge Arshad Malik

A Supreme Court three-member committee led by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa has dealt with the requests concerning the video scandal of former accountability court judge Arshad Malik.

In announcing its comprehensive decision in the case on Friday, the apex court said it might not be suitable for it to interfere with the issue of relevant video and its impacts, especially when the video may be applicable to a criminal complaint currently being brought before the Islamabad High Court.

The decision also reads that the Federal Investigation Agency is already conducting a criminal investigation into the matter.

It suggests that some other offenses or illegality may also involve inquiries or investigations by the competent organizations or forums under some other legislation referred to by the Attorney General. However, it said that any probe in the matter pending before Islamabad High Court by a committee to be formed by the government or by this court may only end up with an view that may have no significance or admissibility in the appropriate appeal.
