SUNDAY TIMES ISLAMABAD:The former minister appeared before the court, however, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar expressed surprise on appearance of Rafique, and said: “Why does Khawaja sahib comes, when the court has not summoned you?,” he asked.

The chief justice asked Rafique to ‘teach the same to Ishaq Dar’ [to appear before the court].

The CJP said he was called auditor general (AG) in the case. He asked AG to furnish his report, to which the auditor general replied that the report had been submitted in the apex court’s Lahore Registry.

Justice Nisar said he had not yet received the report. The hearing of the case was adjourned for a week.

Later speaking to media outside the apex court building, the former minister said it was ironic that those work for the people had to face courts. “But we are ready to face any kind of situation,” he added.
