During Friday’s hearing, NAB’s Deputy Prosecutor General, Fauzi Kazmi, prayed to the honourable court to allow an in-camera hearing for he had some classified disclosures to make. The CJP, rejecting his entreaty, said only those cases, which pertain to national security, are heard in-camera.
“To ensure transparency this case shall be heard in a regular session,” the CJP said.
