ISLAMABAD: Nawaz Sharif hired a new lawyer for representing him in the NAB references.
Khawaja Haris, former legal counsel of Nawaz Sharif in the corruption cases had asked to withdraw from representing him. He withdrew himself after CJP Saqib Nisar had ordered Accountability Court to give verdict in three cases within a month.
CJP Saqib Nisar also rejected Khawaja Haris’ petition for receiving 6 weeks time to decide the cases.
To this Khawaja Haris said that the court had dictated the case to be decided in a month. He also said that he had informed court that he cannot work on Saturdays and Sundays. Court had dictated him to work on weekends which he cannot so he withdrew from the case.
Jahangir Jadoon appeared in court today to submit power of attorney on behalf of his client. He appeared during the hearing of Avenfield Reference being held in Accountability Court today.
The case was adjourned to 19th of June due to the absence of Maryam Nawaz’s lawyer Amjad Pervaiz. The court also ordered Pervaiz to present his final arguments in the reference.
Nawaz Sharif and Daughter were given exemption by Supreme Court from appearing in the hearing of NAB references. Both the father and daughter duo have departed for London in a flight via Doha.
