7 Jun 2012: Sayedee witness order review 5

After the prosecutor finished responding to the prosecution response to Azam's review application, the tribunal then moved onto dealing with the allegations made by the defense about the prosecutors lying to the tribunal about the presence of the witnesses in the safe house (part of their review application of the order relating to the admission of 15 witness statements). The last hearing on this matter was on 3 June

Justice Nizam: Mr. Haider Ali, where are the employees of witness house.

Haider Ali: My lord, they are outside the Tribunal.

Justice Nizam: The trial should be held in camera. We shall sit in our Chamber. You and Chief Prosecutor from the prosecution and Abdur Razzak and another one from the defence come to our chamber.

Then at 11:15am Justice Nizam said “we will rise”. 

Then after the lunch period, the court started its proceedings again

Justice Nizam: Okey, than we should follow the further steps, Hearing will be held on Monday and we have directed one of the appropriate authorities to investigate. We will investigate this matter for our satisfaction.

Abdur Razzak: If your lordships is satisfied then ends of the day prosecution should not be proceeded and Mr. Sayedee is liable to be discharged. Therefore, my lord, investigate the matter and take initiative against the investigation officer.

Haider Ali: I want to see the news of Diganta TV again. Then TV news was exhibited again and Haider Ali indicated that there is no office of Chief investigator in this Tribunal which was shown at that report.

Abdur Razzak: My lord, when the Investigation is started there was an office of chief of investigator officer but after that because of some allegations that post has been removed.
