All eyes were set on the accountability court hearing the high-profile corruption cases against the former prime minister and his family. As the whole nation was glued to their televisions the whole day but Judge Muhammad Bashir had some other plans.
Judge Mohammad Bashir, present inside his chamber announced deadlines so many times that we lost count. At first, the initial delay notices were given out through the court staff, but the last one was pushed by the judge himself.
What’s hilarious is that the judge explained that they have to make an appropriate number of photocopies of the judgment for distribution to the relevant parties.
And Pakistanis did not let go of this opportunity by cracking some of the most hilarious jokes on social media. Here are some of them:

Only way the Sharif's can get a a delay is by asking for #AvenfieldReference to be printed in Braille. 😉

And there you have it…
The Avenfield Reference judgement has been delayed yet again by another 30 minutes
Geo reporter says he's been told judge sahib said they are making photocopies of the 400 page judgement — "page agay peechay bhi ho jatay hain"….
