Court reserves verdict in Khaqan Abbasi LNG reference case

An accountability court of Islamabad Tuesday reserved verdict on the LNG reference against former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

“We will try to pronounce the verdict today,” the accountability court judge said.

“This is a politically motivated case,” Shahid Khaqan Abbasi stated in the court.

“No witness has said anything against me,” he added.

“Why has my life been made difficult for four years?” he raised a question.

“If there is an issue of jurisdiction, let the case be dismissed,” he demanded.

“Four years ago, I had sold a vehicle. But its transfer could not happen due to the case,” he maintained.
