February 15, 2018

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar Thursday directed counsel of ousted prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to pay more attention to trial of NAB corruption references.

CJ Nisar and Khawaja Harris discussed the corruption references against Nawaz Sharif at courtroom.

The CJ said, “The court did not fix your cases in high court and Supreme Court as it more important for you to appear in trial court.”

Khawaja Harris remarked he never pleaded with the court to adjourn the hearing; the court does it of its own accord.

“Khawaja Harris, you go to trial court twice a week,” CJ Nisar said directing the counsel to pay more attention to the trial and go to the trial court to get a ruling.
