Islamabad, August 7 (TNS): Islamabad High Court on Tuesday reserved the verdict on transfer of Al-Azizia and Flagship references to another court.

Khwaja Haris, the Counsel of former premier Nawaz Sharif filed a plea in which he requested the court to shift the two reference cases to another accountability court.

During the hearing the former supremo’s counsel said, “Tariq Shafi’s statement was used against Nawaz Sharif as a weapon”.

“Nawaz Sharif has repeatedly stated that he does not own these properties” he added.
