The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted four weeks to Babar Awan for his testimony in contempt of court case. A two-member SC bench comprising of Justice Athar Saeed and Justice Ejaz Afzal heard the case. As a prosecutor, Attorney General Irfan Qadir presented a CD of Awan’s press conference as evidence and said if the SC wanted to record his statement on the matter, he was ready to do that. The SC then recorded the prosecutor’s statement. Objecting to the evidence and the statement of the prosecutor, Awan said he would inform the court about reasons of his objection later. “If the objection is made over any evidence then according to law, the person who objected is bound to record his statement immediately and Senator Babar Awan has to record his objection immediately,” Justice Afzal said. Then Awan recorded his objection and said his press conference was not against the SC therefore he had objected over the CD being presented as evidence. He said he would continue to respect courts as a lawyer. “I had rendered an unconditional apology but court refused to accept it, I request the SC to not prosecute me as US authorities did Dr Afia Siddiqui because I am cooperating with the court,” Awan said. Justice Afzal said, “Your trial is very different from Dr Afia Siddiqui’s and you will be provided full chance to defend yourself.” Awan then asked the SC to grant him eight weeks to accumulate evidence to be presented before the court. But the SC granted four weeks to Awan and adjourned the hearing until June 27.
