He shared document copies of judgements against Pakistan in the Broadsheet case with journalists.
Akbar said, “Public sharing of these documents is being done on orders of Prime Minister Imran Khan and in line with its consistent and principled stance that transparency is paramount for the process of accountability.”
"It is the prime minister's stance on transparency that everything which should be in public access, the government should do it and make it available," Shehzad Akber said.
He said two judgements were being made public, the judgement for the liability award in 2016 and the judgement for the quantum award in 2018.
