The court’s spokesman said that acting chief justice of IHC Justice Amir Farooq has written a letter to law ministry, seeking to withdraw services of Arshad Malik.

Islamabad High Court has also directed to put together affidavit of judge Arshad Malik with the bail pleas of ex-PM Nawaz Sharif in Al-Azizia reference.

Earlier, judge Arshad Malik had rejected all the allegations leveled by Maryam Nawaz regarding victimizing ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif in fake corruption cases.

The judge had released a statement and termed the leaked video played by PML-N leaders during their press conference fake, fabricated and out of context.

He said that he was not pressurized by anyone to deliver verdict against Nawaz Sharif in Al-Azizia reference and that the decision was announced while fulfilling all the requirements of justice. I should have not acquitted Nawaz Sharif in one case and sentenced him in another case if I was under pressure, he asserted.
