Gilani refuses to appear before FIA
Lawyer of former Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, Fawad Chaudhary has said that his client will not appear before Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). According to media reports, Yusuf Raza Gilani had to appear before FIA on November 28 with reference to the Hajj Scam. However, he refused to do so. Yusuf Raza Gilani's counsel is of the view that all the relevant details have been provided to FIA so there is no need for his client to appear before the state agency.
Fawad Chaudhary noted that the summons against Yusuf Raza Gilani was issued without consultation with the Law Ministry and are aimed at malice against his client. All the appointments made by Gilani as the premier were in accordance with the constitutional obligations, Chaudhary maintained.
