Speaking to media representatives after submitting a written statement, the b
usiness tycoon said that he did not accept the commission.
Riaz said that the commission had not yet asked him to submit his passport. He said that if the commission has asked him to do so, he would have submitted it.
Zahid Bukhari, Malik Riaz’s lawyer, said that he had expressed concerns to the commission about not getting justice. He added that the commission’s duration ended on Oct 5 and therefore, the commission had no legal status any longer.
Bukhari added that commission had done work that it was not authorised for. No commission could be an autonomous organisation or court, he said.
He also said that the commission’s members were relatives of Arsalan Iftikhar’s family; therefore there were no expectations of justice from the commission.
