ISLAMABAD: lawyers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder in NCA £190m case, Sardar Latif Khosa and Sardar Shahbaz Khosa will no longer represent him in the case, ARY News reported.
The sources privy to the development told that Barrister Ali Zafar would now be the defense counsel in the case. The PTI founder did not direct Latif Khosa to step down from the case but he did so owing to busy schedule in connection with campaign for the General Elections 2024.
Latif Khosa is contesting the election from NA-122 where he is facing the challenge of Pakistan Muslim-Nawaz s (PML-N) Saad Rafique.
Meanwhile, Sardar Shahbaz Khosa will continue counselling the PTI founder in the Toshakhana case.
