Contradiction: Who mentioned Nagib Tajdin's Name?

Nagib Tajdin published a dozen Farman Books between 1992 and 2009 after receiving Imam's guidance. He was wrongfully accused in Court by Sachedina and Bhaloo but there was no affidavit from H.H. The Aga Khan nor any known retainer by him to the lawyer. The whole case was bogus. Later in October 2010 the Imam confirmed that he had given instruction to publish the Farman Books in the 1992 Mehmani. The transcript was manipulated and somehow the tape did not contain anything, the Court Typist was arranged by Sachedina's lawyer Mr Gray.

Sachedina's Affidavit says that the Imam mentioned Nagib Tajdin's activities to Sachedina. His earlier testimony says he knew nothing of Nagib's actions before he started working at Aiglemont. Now, Sachedina says that he is the one who mentioned Nagib's name to the Imam.

A. I did tell him that the one that I know who is at the centre of this was Nagib.
Q. You told him?
A. Yes.
Q. So at that time you told His Highness that you know it's Nagib?
A. Yes.
