On Wednesday, the Lahore session court accepted Meesha Shafi’s appeal of changing the judge after she filed a “no confidence” petition for lack of confidence in Ali Zafar’s defamation suit. And now the court took action and issued orders to transfer the defamation case to a different court.
The petition was heard by Khalid Nawaz at the Lahore’s session court and the appeal proceeded further. Session judge immediately issued a decision on Meesha’s petition and gave the order to transfer the case to an additional session judge, Amjad Ali Shah. Now Shah will be conducting the hearing of the case on May 11.
Earlier, On Saturday Meesha filed a petition against the judge hearing Ali Zafar’s defamation case. She said,
“The judge has shown a clear and obvious bias in favor of the plaintiff which is apparent from the mode and manner in which he has so far conducted the proceedings,” the petition read. “The defendant does not have any confidence that the learned judge will be able to impartially and fairly proceeding in the case and hence desires to transfer her above-mentioned case to any other court of competent jurisdiction.”
