The First Witness Has Shared Their Statement In The Meesha Shafi And Ali Zafar Case

The First Witness Has Shared Their Statement In The Meesha Shafi And Ali Zafar Case

Share

On Saturday, a Lahore sessions court recorded the statement of a witness in the Meesha Shafi-Ali Zafar defamation case which has been making headlines for the past year.

The court had previously rejected Shafi’s appeal not to record the witnesses’ statements as her request was pending in the Supreme Court. 

Meesha Shafi had asked the court to stop the process until the verdict of the top court is issued.

However, the judge said the hearing would continue as per schedule and recorded the statement of one witness, Kanza Muneer.

The statements of the other witnesses will be recorded on May 18

In her statement, Muneer shared that during the rehearsal, at which 11 people were present and videos were made, Zafar and Shafi maintained five to six feet distance from each other. She said that Shafi left after saying bye and claimed that her allegations of harassment were false.

In April 2018, Shafi accused Ali Zafar of harassing her on Twitter on ‘more than one occasion.’ 

“This happened to me despite the fact that I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind,” she said.

Recently, Shafi’s legal team sent Zafar a defamation notice demanding a public apology and Rs2 billion in damages.
