Islamabad: Malik Riaz Hussain, the key character behind Riaz Malik- Arsalan Iftikhar saga, submitting a reply in a contempt of court case against him has sought unconditional apology from the Supreme Court for insulting the apex judiciary in his June 12 press conference.
He said in a written statement that Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry was not been targeted in the press conference and that was just to expose his son Arsalan Iftikhar. “I had no choice left besides holding a press conference and clarify my image,” he argued.
He stated that he held the press conference to prevent the damage to Bahria Town, which had been brought to the edge of disaster.
The case is being heard by a three member bench led by Justice Shakir-ullah-Jan who has already rejected the plea made by Riaz Malik if giving him exemption.
