On the other hand, Naser Al-Hafy, member of the defense panel, has stated that such request for adjourning the committee"s testimony is due to the right of the defense panel to see and examine the reports written by the financial committee.
He clarified that such reports have not been received by the defense panel until yesterday (Sunday). Adding that such reports consist of 8 volumes, each of 500 pages, the reason why they did not have much time to examine.
