Khawaja Haris urges Judge Bashir to recuse from Flagship, Al-Azizia references

ISLAMABAD: Ousted prime minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif’s counsel, Khawaja Haris, urged Judge Mohammad Bashir to recuse himself from trial proceedings regarding the Flagship and Al-Azizia references.

Haris said that since the same judge had already convicted the former PM and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, so he should recuse himself from the other pending cases against the Sharif family.

The counsel maintained that the evidence in all three references was the same and since the judge had already disclosed his opinion on the evidence, it would be inappropriate for him to hear the other two references.

Haris suggested that the matter should be referred to the Islamabad High Court chief justice to which Judge Bashir responded that he would but he would also write a letter to the Supreme Court pertaining to the matter.
