LAHORE - Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry of the Lahore High Court on Wednesday deferred till March 29 the judgment on the federal government plea, seeking permission to further interrogate about Dr AQ Khan fresh interviews to an American newspaper. The judgment on two other main petitions, one filed by Dr AQ Khan challenging govt restrictions on his free movement and the other moved by the government against Dr Khan, seeking ban on his movement would also be announced on March 29. From March 11 onward, the court had deferred announcement of the judgment several times, mostly on the requests of the government counsels. The court was expected to announce its judgment on March 22 and the media was waiting for it outside the court but the federal government again filed a plea, stating that new allegations had surfaced against Dr Khan. The government pointed out that Simon Andersen had published two new articles in The Washington Post about nuclear programme of Pakistan, attributing his source to Dr Khan. Thus, the court deferred the judgment until March 24. On Wednesday, the court again deferred the judgment till March 29. According to govts plea, the articles could be a conspiracy against Pakistan or Dr Khan, stressing that it needed a probe, the counsels pleaded for permission to question Dr Khan. On the other hand, Ali Zafar, counsel for Dr Khan, said his client had already denied all allegations of giving interviews to foreign newspapers, asserting that the government was using delaying tactics to delay the courts judgment. Dr Khan had challenged the ban on meeting his relatives and his free movement. The government has however opposed it on the pretext of national security issues, linked to nuclear assets of the country.
