Dr Asim concerned over security threats

NAB wrongly implicating my client: Mansoor
By Nasir Mahmood
Karachi: Anwar Mansoor Advocate, the defence counsel for Dr Asim Hussain, has said that NAB has wrongly implicated his client just to damage his personality in the eyes of general people. He was talking to media outside the NAB court IV after hearing.

The counsel said, “As you have already observed the second witness produced by the NAB authorities in today’s hearing was not a chartered accountant but an administrative officer of the said Company.”

Mansoor added, ‘He was not having any information or knowledge about the audit or accounts. He had only produced the audited reports of last ten years from 2004 to 2014 on the instructions and on behalf of the partner of the audit firm.”

It may be pointed out that in those reports too there was no qualification mentioned which means that all ten years accounts were in accordance with law, and there was nothing illegal found on behalf of Dr Ziauddin University accounts, the counsel said.

Dr Asim’s lawyer further disclosed that NAB authorities knew that there was nothing illegal or objectionable in this case that’s why they did not produce the relevant person or officials of the chartered accountants. “It was also proved by the earlier witness appeared in last week’s hearing that there was nothing done wrong by his client. The NAB authorities had tarnished his image in the eyes of public.”

Earlier, while coming out of the NAB court Dr Asim Hussain expressed his concern over the security alert news on behalf of a secret agency. Replying to media queries, Dr Asim said that he was being victimized through such dubious news items.
