Unsatisfied with justice in Pakistan, business tycoon Malik Riaz has decided to to take his tirade against Arsalan Iftikhar to a Britain court, claimed his counsel Zahid Bukhari on Monday as reported by Express News.
Speaking to the media at Lahore High Court, Bukhari said that the exchange of money between his client and Arsalan took place in Britain, and therefore it is better to file a case there too.
In this connection, Bukhari said he will leave for Britain on December 25, 2012.
The lawyer claimed that Pakistan’s courts were not providing justice to Riaz and reposed his faith in Britain’s judiciary instead, hoping that its courts will be unbiased and will pass a fair judgement.
In June, following media reports that Arsalan had received between Rs300 and Rs400 million from a real estate tycoon to influence judicial proceedings, the Supreme Court had summoned him and Riaz to initiate proceedings against them. Later, the court also formulated a one-man commission to probe the allegations but Riaz did not appear before it claiming that the commission was ‘biased’.
