Asma says SC can be shut if media continues trial
ISLAMABAD: Former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) and rights activist Asma Jahangir said that the Supreme Court can be shut down if the media continues to play the role of judiciary on Friday.
She added the report by the Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report should be left to the SC to decide upon as it contains very sensitive legal issues.
"The JIT report is an investigation and investigations are challenged in courts and the JIT is not the same as the Supreme Court," said Asma.
She further said that the report was leaked and now the media is carrying out a trial based on the leaked documents.
