News Desk :

Former judge of the Accountability Court, Arshad Malik died of the COVID19 on Friday morning. Family sources said the condition of Arshad Malik, the judge of the Accountability Court was critical for the last few days.

The Judge was on a ventilator after his condition deteriorated. He added that the former judge was under treatment at Shifa International Hospital in Islamabad. Malik is survived by two sons and two daughters.

In December 2018, Malik had convicted ex-premier Nawaz Sharif in the Al Azizia reference, sentencing him to seven years in jail. However, he had acquitted Sharif in the Flagship reference.

But in July 2020, after a year-long inquiry, the Lahore High Court’s (LHC) administration committee had removed Malik from service on charges of misconduct relating to a video scandal that broke in 2019, and which sent ripples through political and legal circles.
