ISLAMABAD: Three lawyers have refused to record their statement at Pervez Musharraf’s Chak Shahzad farmhouse that was declared as a sub-jail by the court in judges’ detention case.
According to sources, three lawyers – Wajid Gilani, Fazlur Rehman Niazi and Anwar Khan – have turned down the option of going to the Chak Shahzad farmhouse where currently Musharraf is being held.
The lawyers were of the view that they will not go to the dictator’s house to record their statements but they are willing to use Adiala Jail or a local court in Islamabad as the venue.
The anti-terrorism court (ATC) had issued summons to 15 witnesses to submit their statements in the judges’ detention case today. Therefore, ATC judge Kausar Abbas Zaidi has arrived at the Chak Shahzad sub-jail.
