CJP Justice Saqib Nisar reveals lawyer who increases his heartbeat in court

ISLAMABAD – The Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP), Mian Saqib Nisar has made stunning revelations in the court.

CJP quipped about his heartbeat in the court quoting former premier Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer, Khawaja Haris.

The top judge while hearing a case regarding NAB’s appeal against the suspension of Sharifs’ conviction in Avenfield reference told Khawaja Haris “My doctor tells me my heartbeat increases every time I face you”.

Moreover, the CJP asked Khawaja Haris if he has objections on the inclusion of Justice Asif Saeed Khosa in the larger bench, a remark which stirred burst of laughter in the courtroom.

Justice Khosa’s reference in the case bears a special meaning as he had written dissenting notes in the Supreme Court’s Panamagate case verdict. He headed the five-member bench which gave an interim split decision by 2:3 in the Panama case.
