Broadsheet LLC’s CEO Kaveh Moussavi Saturday asked Pakistan’s Broadsheet case commission head Justice (R) Azmat Saeed Sheikh to apologise to him within seven days or he will sue Justice (r) Azmat in London High Court over defamation, reported 24News HD TV channel.

Rejecting the Broadsheet Commission’s report Moussavi said Justice (r) Azmat has described him as a convicted person in the report, however, civil contempt does not lead to a criminal record.

He said Justice (r) Azmat does not know the difference between criminal record and civil contempt.

He claimed that Federal Minister Ali Zaid was in his contact and he had asked him to contact the commission and assured him of transparent investigations. “Ali Zaidi also assured me of implementation of the court’s orders.”

He said he had stupidly supposed that Imran Khan-led government is different (from predecessors). “I thought Imran Khan-led government was serious in taking measures against corruption,” he rued.

Moussavi claimed that not a single person’s statement was included in the inquiry while he himself was the most important witness in the case.

He claimed that the inquiry report tried to hide the facts and termed it a black stain on the judicial history. “The judiciary should either condemn this report or should bow their heads before the people.”

He alleged that the language used in the inquiry reports was that of ‘mafia lawyers’ and saying it a judicial report would be shameful.

He said Imran Khan should have conducted a free and fair investigation as per law and if he believes such a report he has no right to remain in the Prime Minister’s office.

He said it was wrong to hand over the inquiry to a person who has an association with NAB and Justice (r) Azmat should had himself recused from the inquiry due to the conflict of interest.

He alleged that Justice (r) Azmat did not serve the masses and instead brought shame to the judicial system.

He said Pakistan is not ready to pay the remaining amount and no person is ready to take responsibility for the implementation of the court’s orders. “Pakistan government did not respect the court’s order and I am still waiting for the remaining amount and further delay in the payment would result in more financial losses to the Pakistani people.”

He said Broadsheet has further freeze Pakistan’s money but Pakistan has not initiated any process in this regard.
