LAHORE/ISLAMABAD, Dec 24: Zahid Bokhari, counsel for property tycoon Malik Riaz, will leave for UK on Tuesday to explore the possibility of filing a case against Arsalan Iftikhar, son of the Chief Justice of Pakistan.

“Had Pakistani courts done justice, there would have been no need to approach foreign courts,” Mr Bokhari told journalists at the Lahore High Court on Monday.

He said the Supreme Court had declared that the case between Malik Riaz and Mr Arsalan was a private one and they could resort to legal proceedings against each other.

He alleged that Mr Arsalan had enjoyed benefits in London with the money provided by Malik Riaz and a competent court of the UK could be approached for legal action. However, he added, he would consult British legal experts before filing a civil or criminal case against Mr Arsalan.
