ISLAMABAD: A National Accountability Bureau (NAB) witness caused panic during a hearing in the accountability court (AC) on Friday after the revelation that he is infected with the COVID-19.
“I’m COVID-19 positive, please record my statement quickly,” a NAB witness named Amir Haider Malik pleaded with the court in the Muzarba scandal case hearing.
The revelation caused panic in the AC courtroom-2 at the Islamabad Judicial Complex. AC Judge Azam Khan, lawyers and others vacated the courtroom quickly.
Later, the room was disinfected with chlorine spray, while the COVID-19 infected witness was asked to leave the courtroom with immediate effect.
