IS­LAM­ABAD: Supreme Court (SC) has di­rected Ac­count­abil­ity Court (AC) to an­nounce de­ci­sion on NAB ref­er­ences against Nawa z Sharif till De­cem­ber 24.

SC while fix­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion of A C judge for im­me­di­ate hear­ing sum­moned Khawaja Haris, coun­sel for Nawaz Sharif Fri­day.

A 3-mem­ber bench of SC took up the case for hear­ing.

At the in­cep­tion of hear­ing CJP in­quired from Khawaja Haris, ar­gu­ments have reached upto what level in both ref­er­ences. There is time for ar­gu­ments. You have held the en­tire na­tion and ju­di­ciary as hostage. Why are you de­lay­ing the mat­ter. What kind of a big lawyer are you . If you can not com­plete the work in time then don’t take up the cases. You should com­plete your ar­gu­ment within stip­u­lated time.

Khawaja Haris said “I am not a big lawyer. Has some one com­plained that we are pro­long­ing the mat­ter. If it seems to like this then I quit the case. To my view point, it is im­proper to say that I am pro­long­ing the mat­ter. My en­ergy level is not like your en­ergy level. If court says so then I quit the case.

CJP re­marked “your at­ti­tude is like this that you get an­gry over ev­ery mat­ter and boy­cott. You had ob­jec­tion over giv­ing ar­gu­ments on Satur­day and Sun­day. Do you know how I work. You are talk­ing of leav­ing the case. I will not al­low my ju­di­ciary to be ru­ined. Tell us when you will con­clude your ar­gu­ments.

IS­LAM­ABAD: For­mer PM Nawaz Sharif leaves Ac­count­abil­ity court af­ter his hear­ing.
