Ali Zafar Receives A Notice On Meesha’s Plea For Video Cross-Examination
Ali Zafar received a notice from the court on Wednesday because of Meesha Shafi's application on letting her send a video link of her cross-examination.
A plea application was submitted by Meesha Shafi and her husband to allow them to let them send a cross-examination video for the infamous Meesha-Ali defamation suit instead of coming to Pakistan for it. On Wednesday a session court was held where a notice was issued to actor and singer Ali Zafar.
This application was filed by Meesha and her husband through the advocate Saqib Jillani. According to the advocate they have already recorded their examination-in-chief back in 2019 and now they want to record their cross-examination through a video link as well.
This is because due to the global pandemic, travel all around the world halted and them being Canadian residents, they couldn’t travel to Pakistan for the cross-examination. In the application, Meesha also stated that she thinks that false defamation is just a way to silence and torment her from going further with her sexual harassment case against Ali Zafar.
She actually recorded her cross-examination on the 9th of December in 2019 but due to the lawyer strike in December 2019 due to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) occurrence Meesha’s cross-examination could not be conducted and then she had to leave for Canada, as she is a citizen there. Her cross-examination was ten scheduled for March/April 2020, when she was supposed to visit Pakistan however the pandemic took over and international travel became impossible for a couple of months, which delayed her cross-examination further. The pandemic also made the courts of Pakistan take limited and urgent hearings only.
“That defendant being a working mother and on account of the unnecessary costs and expenses is severely constrained to travel back to Pakistan and requests that arrangement be made so that she and her husband’s cross-examination be conducted through a video link,” Meesha’s application said.
On the basis of this application, Ali was issued a notice. The defamation suit was filed by Ali Zafar on the basis that Meesha’s sexual harassement case cost him his reputation, public image and caused his family and friends to be questioned and defamed.
In the filed suit Ali pleaded the court to pass an edict for Meesha and ask her to pay RS 1 Billion for the damages he faced due to her harassment case.
