In a surprising move, defense lawyer Khawaja Harris on Monday has excused himself from representing ex-prime minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif in National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references.
Khawaja Harris said that the Supreme Court did not accept his stance of completing the trial in six weeks. I was being dictated even after judicial hours, he added.
He also expressed reservations over holding court proceedings on Saturdays and Sundays, saying that he cannot work under such circumstances.
Afterward, Nawaz Sharif has been directed to hire another lawyer till June 12.
