ISLAMABAD (ENNS) The Islamabad High Court (IHC) here on Friday asked the law ministry to remove accountability court judge Arshad Malik over the video controversy.

Earlier in the day, judge Malik had written a letter to the IHC refuting Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz’s allegations and the video purportedly showing the judge admitting to lack of evidence against former thrice Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

In an affidavit submitted to the IHC, Malik denied the contents of the video and termed them as edited, fabricated, aimed to defame him, sources said.

According to an IHC spokesperson, acting IHC Chief Justice Amir Farooq received judge Malik’s letter and then decided to request the law ministry to remove him from the post.

The spokesperson further said, on the order of Chief Justice Farooq, judge Malik’s affidavit and letter has been made part of Nawaz Sharif’s acquittal plea.
Moreover last week Maryam Nawaz had released the said video with media and claimed that verdict against his father was manipulated by force
