Imran, Bushra Bibi’s right of cross-examination struck off

RAWALPINDI: (Web Desk) An accountability court on Monday struck off the right of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi to cross-examine the witnesses in the Toshakhana case.

After the order announced by Judge Muhammad Bashir in Adiala Jail, the statements of the PTI founder and his spouse will be record tomorrow.

At the outset of the hearing, Imran requested for the change of counsel. Currently, he is represented by Zaheer Abbas. However, the prosecution counsel opposed the request, arguing that repeated requests for change of lawyers were merely delay tactics. He added that such tactics were aimed at prolonging the trial.

NAB lawyer Amjad Parvez opposed the continuous change of lawyers and alleged that such tactics were employed to deliberately delay the case. He accused the defence of using delaying tactics. He pointed out that witnesses had appeared in the court multiple times without being cross-examined.

So far in the Toshakhana case, only five witnesses have been examined by the defence while the prosecution recorded statements of 16 witnesses.
