Express July 05, 2011

The Banking Court Judge refused to hear NICL scam case against Moonis Elahi following a heated exchange with his counsels.

During the hearing, Moonis Elahi's lawyers presented their argument on the acquittal request that was earlier filed under section 249-A.

The court directed Abdul Malik, the manager of Moonis Elahi, to record his statement again.

However, this was objected to by the lawyers of Moonis Elahi.

Court Judge Abdul Rasheed asserted that the court has a right to ask for any statement if required.

This resulted in a heated debate between the lawyers and the judge that continued for three and a half hours.

The judge then refused to hear the case and referred it to the Lahore High Court.
