Video-gate saga: FIA barred from arresting Nasir Janjua
ISLAMABAD - The Islamabad High Court extended the pre-arrest bail of Nasir Janjua - a key figure in the video scandal involving former accountability court judge Arshad Malik.

The high court in on Tuesday extended his bail till July 31 and also barred the Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) from arresting Janjua; the court also granted Janjua protective bail till July 31.

Nasir Janjua was named by the former accountability court judge, Arshad Malik in his affidavit. The former judge had cited Janjua as saying that he [Malik] was appointed accountability court judge due to his support.

The former judge also revealed a meeting that took place in early 2018, wherein an acquaintance named Nasir Janjua associated with the PML-N, “implored” him to issue verdicts of acquittal in the Al-Azizia and Flagship references.

Malik quoted Janjua as saying that it was on his personal recommendation that he [Malik] was appointed as a judge of the accountability court adding that during the arguments stage of the references’ trial, he was again approached by Janjua with a “financial offer” from Nawaz of Rs100 million but that he refused.

The controversy erupted after Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President, Maryam Nawaz released a video clip purportedly showing judge Malik allegedly admitting to a lack of evidence against Nawaz Sharif in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills corruption case.
