Wajid Zia snubs Sharif's lawyer Khwaja Haris in Accountability Court

ISLAMABAD - The legal counsel of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, Khawaj Haris had barred Nawaz Sharif from filing plea seeking exemption from hearing.

Replying to Haris’s question, Wajid Zia told court net profit order of HME had been acquired from report of Audit Bureau. He said, “It is neither product of Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT) nor was an attempt made to consult those who prepared these documents”.

Zia—during cross-examination—snubbed Haris over asking technical questions. The judge of the accountability court also barred Haris from going into technicalities and asked him not to divert attention from the case. To this, Haris replied he had been practicing law for 40 years and Zia knew why such questions were posed before him.

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor apprised the court report was submitted by the defence lawyer. He further added Nawaz Sharif—the ousted premier—received 88pc profit HME.
