LAHORE: Advocate Zahid Bukhari, counsel of contractor Malik Riaz, on Wednesday expressed distrust over the one man inquiry commission of Shoaib Suddle probing the Arsalan Iftikhar saga and reiterated that he will not appear before it.
Talking to the media at Lahore High Court premises, Bukhari explained that the federal tax ombudsman Suddle had family relations with the Chief Justice of Pakistan, therefore, the findings of the commission could not be impartial.
“We will not appear before the commission till a decision is announced on a review petition pending before the Supreme Court against the constitution of the commission,” Bukhari told the media and added that the commission had been informed about this in writing as well.
The Supreme Court had formed the commission headed by Shoaib Suddle to probe allegations of Riaz against chief justice’s son Arsalan Iftikhar.
