ISLAMABAD: Accountability Court adjourned the hearing of corruption references against deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar till December 4.
Today, Nawaz Sharif filed an application seeking suspension of the court’s proceedings until the decision of Islamabad High Court is announced on a petition through which he had appealed for clubbing of NAB references.
NAB National Accountability Bureau’s prosecutor, Sardar Muzzafar, objected to Nawaz’s request saying that the proceeding could not be suspended.
However, the accountability court rejected the prosecutor’s request as it adjourned the hearing till Dec 4.
Two prosecution witnesses, who had reached the court, could not record their statements today due to adjournment of the hearing.
Later, Nawaz Sharif along with his daughter and son-in-law departed from the courtroom.
Earlier, Nawaz Sharif accompanied with his daughter Maryam Nawaz reached the Federal Judicial Academy from the airport. Former PM’s squad and Islamabad mayor reached the airport to escort them to the court.
