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.
